• Welcome to Our Class

  • Welcome the page!!!!
    I am La Toia Henderson and I teach the cosmetology program at the AK Smith Career Center. My goal and mission is to have well rounded professional cosmetologist.
    I have worked in the cosmetology field for over 25 years. I began my career as a stylist of JCPenney Salon, as I attended Calumet College of St. Joseph to get my bachlor degree in business management. I worked as a stylist for 7 years, then moved up to manage 3 different JCPenney salons. While working at JCPenney as a manager I went back to school to get my cosmetology instructor license so I can teach cosmetology. Once I received my instructor license, I worked for Regency Beauty Instiute. The company closed and I then worked at Ulta Beauty as salon manager, but was not happy managing anymore. I realized that I wanted to give back to my field.
