haircut and oil change - services at the CTC
Posted in , on February 23, 2023

Haircuts and much more at the CTC

There’s only one place in Arlington – and maybe DFW – where you can get your haircut and your car’s oil changed at the same time and at the same place. And while you’re at it, you can order your lunch and flowers for someone special, too.

It’s all at the Arlington ISD Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center. Juniors and seniors in cosmetology, automotive, culinary and floral design offer a host of great services at great prices. What better way to celebrate Career and Technical Education Month than with a visit to the CTC’s Bistro, Salon, Auto Service Center or Floral studio?

See the CTC Services brochure.
