Cosmetology student Sophia DeMarco of Amherst treats a very special client to some time at the Lorain County JVS Reflections Salon. She invited Heather Schmidt of Huron for a facial. Schmidt is undergoing chemotherapy treatments and has a weekly massage or facial to help with the stress of the treatments. “I relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed my facial,” affirmed Schmidt. “It helps with some of the pain and migraines that I often have. What a wonderful thing (for) the JVS and Sophia to do for me.” The Reflections Salon is operated by senior cosmetology students under the direction of their licensed cosmetology instructors. It is open from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. Appointments are highly recommended and can be made by calling 440-774-1051 ext. 22373.
