Launching the event in Accra, the Director of the College, Mr. King David Thompson revealed that, the College has produced over 2000 practitioners since it started and majority of whom are managing their own salons or working at manufacturing plants as Public Relations Officer (PRO), Sales Executives and educationists. Some of the products of the College can be found at companies like L?Oreal West Africa, Slid Industries, Nouvelle Perfumeries, AFAM Concepts among others.

Abrantie College of Cosmetology has chalked enviable records in the Cosmetology industry. Abrantie was voted Best School in the Softsheen Carson?s Inter-Colleges Competition in 2009 as well as winning the first and second positions in the National Golden Scissor Awards organized by L?Oreal West Africa in 2010.

Programmes offered at the College include hairdressing, colouring, haircutting, permanent waving and thermal hair straightening.

?Our biggest challenge is funding?, Mr Thompson lamented. Some students enroll but along the line they are unable to complete the course because of funding. We have limited space also to accommodate all our students. We need support, he advocates. In view of this, the College has established the ABRANTIE INVEST FOUNDATION which seeks among other things to support needy but brilliant students in the College. Anybody who is touched can donated to this scheme, he urged.

Some members of the Center for Employment of Persons with Disabilities have benefit from Abrantie College training. The President of the Association, Alexander Tetteh has however bemoaned the lack of recognition of the Cosmetology industry in Ghana by government as an alternative to solving unemployment problems in the country and advocates for Cosmetology to be included in the National Youth employment module.[nggallery id=60]

As part of the 5 years anniversary celebration, a number of activities has been outlined. The College would engage in games on 4th October, there would be fun fare on 20th October, there would also be a Peace float together with some other companies in the Cosmetology industry on 27th October.

There would be a grand graduation ceremony on 1st November to be held at the National Theatre. On 4th November, there would be a thanksgiving church service at the Calvary Temple branch of ICGC, Sakumono.

?The 5th year anniversary celebration is targeted at collaborating with National Board for Professional and Technician Examination (NABPTEX) and Tertiary Institutions to accommodate graduates who wish to pursue their education in achieving Bachelor or Masters in Cosmetology, we are also calling on government to come to our aid in making our dream come to pass by positioning Cosmetology in the Country, Mr Thompson requested.

Abrantie College of Cosmetology is an ultra modern chain of salons and cosmetology school that is making unprecedented strides in the beauty industry. It started with a salon some fifteen years ago in a humble neighbourhood at community seven, Tema. In 2002, another branch was opened at community two due to high demand and easy accessibility of clients within the Sakumono, Community2 &3. Then came a third one which is a clinic and college on the Spintex road in November 2007. Yet another which is the fourth branch was opened in community 4 to accommodate clients within that community & the industrial area. All these outlets serve as ground for student?s on internship. The CEO and visionary who started it all is King David Thompson.
