HomeNewsHi-Tech Hair Education Event with Goldwell UK
On Monday 14th October we held our first Hi-Tech Hair Education Event at Boringdon Park Golf Club in collaboration with Goldwell UK.
This was a fantastic opportunity for our Hairdressing and Barbering Students to watch, learn and be guided by expert Educators. There was a great turn out to the event with our Apprentice’s Salon Managers and Stylists attending as well as Goldwell’s salons.
Four Goldwell Colour Educators demonstrated a range of their latest colour, cutting and styling techniques. We would like to say a big thank you to the inspirational Goldwell Educators and Artists who attended including Sarah Riggott, Chrissie Booth and Lisa Whiteman – Director of Whiteman Soho in London and F.A.M.E Team Member Lora Griffin.
As it was a ‘look and learn’ event, the attendees were all encouraged to get involved and to step up onto the podiums with the Educators. Dan our Head of Hair and Dionne one of our Hairdressing Assessors also showcased their skills at the event. Dan demonstrated the perfect skin fade and along with one of our Level 2 Hairdressing Apprentice’s Lewis, Dionne created a festival inspired colourful braid.
“After seeing alternative and creative cuts and colours, I feel totally inspired. It’s put confidence into my own personality and style; I’m ready to let my creativity flow!”
“Today has been a well of information. The demonstrations have been amazing and provided plenty of ideas. I will come away from today with a different outlook on hair.”
The event also provided our Beauty Learners a great opportunity to gain experience in a professional setting as they were involved with preparing the model’s make up backstage.
There were also a number of competitions and prize draws for everyone to participate in during the event, including the giveaway of 4 pairs of hair straighteners!
Before the main event, we held an Employer Breakfast/ Presentation for our Apprentice’s Salon Managers. Training Manager Donna and Head of Hair Dan gave a presentation about the new End Point Assessment process.
Thank you to Goldwell and everyone who was involved in the preparation of this event, we have received some amazing feedback from our Students and Salons! Also, thank you to Chris Plant for capturing some brilliant visuals on the day.
“I have really enjoyed today. I loved the fact that there were several demonstrations happening at the same time which allowed us to go in-between. Thank you!”
