CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A group of cosmetology students in Corpus Christi celebrated a huge accomplishment: graduating from the program at Southern Careers Institute.

Students at the Southern Star Salon ended their school year with a fashion show to display what they've learned; they're the first graduating class from the program.

Family and friends were invited to watch as models strutted their looks on the runway. Students created different looks for the models, including their hair, makeup and wardrobe. 

"it's amazing that everyone pulled this together; different styles, different looks, different ages, so I'm very proud of them," Campus Director Tammy Newsom said.

Instructors said over 50 models participated in the show and dozens of people showed up to support their cosmetology students.
