As­pir­ing teen hair stylists get a taste of the in­dus­try

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Col­lege hosted a spe­cial work­shop for as­pir­ing hair stylists who are not yet old enough to at­tend the col­lege.

The col­lege’s Pure Sa­lon was a hive of ac­tiv­ity with stu­dents aged be­tween 13 and 16 tak­ing part in a spe­cial Hair and Beauty work­shop.

Thirty par­tic­i­pants were given in­dus­try styling tips and learned spe­cial­ist tech­niques from the col­lege’s pro­fes­sion­als, work­ing with the equip­ment in the col­lege’s sa­lon.

The work­shop gave ev­ery­one the chance to have a go at ses­sions in hair­dress­ing, beauty ther­apy and me­dia make-up. Hairstyling in­cluded plait­ing and curl­ing to cre­ate dif­fer­ent hair styles us­ing man­nequin heads, while in the beauty ther­apy depart­ment there was a demon­stra­tion of nail art tech­niques.

Fi­nally, the young peo­ple let their imag­i­na­tion run wild with a face-paint­ing ac­tiv­ity us­ing the­atri­cal make-up in the me­dia make-up sa­lon.

Jill Perkins, the col­lege’s cur­ricu­lum man­ager for Hair, Beauty and Me­dia Make-up, said: “I was thrilled to see so much tal­ent and cre­ativ­ity from th­ese young learn­ers. They demon­strated ex­cel­lent nail art de­signs and hair styles. Their imag­i­na­tion was im­pres­sive with fan­tas­tic ideas for the face paint­ing ses­sion be­ing cre­ated. I look for­ward to wel­com­ing th­ese learn­ers onto our full time pro­grammes over the next few years and de­vel­op­ing their nat­u­ral abil­ity to be­come our ex­cel­lent stylist, ther­a­pist and make-up artists of the fu­ture.”
