Beyoncé Opens Cosmetology Center In Brooklyn
Beyoncé hits Brooklyn today to cut the ribbon on a very special project — the Beyonce Cosmetology Center at Phoenix House, a rehab center.
Phoenix House runs something called the Career Academy, a residential substance abuse treatment program that offers vocational training programs. Beyoncé’s new venture will allow men and women in treatment to prepare for careers in the cosmetology field after a seven-month training course.
Beyoncé spent time at Phoenix House in order to prepare for the role of a drug-addicted Etta James in the 2008 film, Cadillac Records.
In related news, B and husband Jay-Z (plus Mama Tina, Trey Songz, Kevin Liles and others) visited the White House recently.
