AT DOWN­TOWN hair­dresser Clas­sic Cuts, Deb Ford and her two ap­pren­tices, Eron Mitchell and Elly Bee­z­ley, have been mak­ing spe­cial things hap­pen.

Full-time ap­pren­tice Eron started in Jan­uary this year and has al­ready pro­gressed to her sec­ond-year train­ing.

Mrs Ford said that Eron was ef­fi­cient, happy and clever when it came to styling and cut­ting hair.

“Eron started her ap­pren­tice­ship after grade 10 and she has knuck­led down to some se­ri­ous learn­ing,” Mrs Ford said.

“Eron is cre­ative, re­li­able and fun to work with.”

Eron trav­els from Gayn­dah ev­ery day to work at Clas­sic Cuts and wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I like to style hair up – that is I like mak­ing peo­ple feel bet­ter about them­selves and my goal is that when the peo­ple leave the shop they feel bet­ter than when they came in,” she said.

Eron chooses to train at Toowoomba Col­lege of Hair­dress­ing.

Elly started a part-time ap­pren­tice­ship after choos­ing to change her ca­reer path from teach­ing to hair­dress­ing.

She has been work­ing two days a week in be­tween rais­ing her young fam­ily.

“I like meet­ing lots of dif­fer­ent peo­ple and ev­ery day some­thing new just walks through the door,” she said.

“Chang­ing some­one’s style is some­thing very spe­cial that we do here and to be a part of that is fan­tas­tic.

Mrs Ford said the two women were very tal­ented, and were al­ways look­ing for new ways to sat­isfy cus­tomers.
