BLUEWELL, W.Va. (WVVA) - Some “hair-raising” news out of Mercer County as 40 students at Bluewell Elementary school got free fresh hairdos.

The styles were courtesy of cosmetology students.

They’re enrolled at Mercer County Technical Education Center.

Instructor, Alicia Lester says this was the perfect opportunity for her students to help out these younger students.

“This is a great experience,” said Lester. “These are the typical types of children that you’ll get in the salon in your chair, and learn how to deal with them, because they’re little moving targets, and finding out and letting their personality come out in their haircut.

We’re told parents were involved with picking out their kids’ hairstyles.
