Debra Lapworth

Cosmetology Instructor

I attended Taunton Beauty Academy in 1978 and graduated in 79. For 5 years I worked for a salon management company. The company owned 6 salons and it was my job to oversee daily operations.  I was also responsible for education and I was responsible for hiring, training staff and salon policy. I have been working as a hairdresser for 36 years and have been at the same salon for 25 years.  I began teaching seven years ago and have been a permanent substitute teacher at Bristol Plymouth Vo-Tech for 6 years. I have my cosmetologist license and I’ve had my instructor’s license for 7 years.  I have also have my preliminary Department of Education license and I am continuing to take the Oced classes required to get my permanent license. I am novalash certified I am LCN gel nails certified. But the majority of my extracurricular education is in color and corrective color.  I plan to continue taking classes to stay up on current trends in my field. I am also writing the curriculum for the 2015 evening cosmetology program STI Regional High School.
