Updos and haircuts are the specialty of four Rocky Point High School cosmetology students who have been selected to compete in this year’s Regional Skills USA competition at Suffolk County Community College this March. 

Juniors Mariann Bornemann and Kayley Negus along with seniors Katarina Caselli and Sarah Levonick will work to showcase their talents and technical skills as they compete against approximately 30 other students. During the contest, the students will have 35 minutes to complete a haircut as well as 35 minutes to complete a hair updo on mannequins. 

The students will be judged on their products as well as their approach to the tasks, and awards will be presented to winners the day following the competition at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
