Need a pedicure? Head to this prison

In 2013 Valley State Prison in Chowchilla, California became a male prison with a very unique skills training program. As a women's prison, Valley State had a cosmetology certification course just like any you would find outside its walls. That program now continues with male inmates and is thriving. Here, dedicated students work toward professional certification by building service skills that will translate outside the prison walls.
