Aspiring teen hair stylists get a taste of the industry
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.”
