Male Inmates Take Part In Prison Beauty School


A maximum security prison in Chowchilla, California is teaching men how to do their hair and nails. 

Male inmates at Valley State Prison practice on each other and prison staff, working to get their cosmetology license. 

Carmen Shehorn, their teacher, says that she wants her students to have a blank slate, so she doesn’t read their files. “I’m not here to punish them, I’m here to teach them a new skill,” she adds.
