Apprentices make the cut
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.
LOVE THE JOB: Eron Mitchell and Elly Beezley love their apprenticeship work at Classic Cuts.
