Getting creative with hair, make up and paper!

For the past three weeks, our Hair, Barbering and Beauty teams have hosted Slovenian learners in partnership with Tellus Education Group, helping them to develop their general industry skills as well as to practice their English. The students worked alongside our own Study Programme learners and Level 2 Hair and Barbering apprentices, spending four days a week practising hair techniques and one day a week with beauty learners developing their make-up skills.

The learners also spent time with some of our top local employers and enjoyed Masterclasses led by experts in their field. This included a Trichology session looking at the scientific study of the hair and scalp with one of our employers, Chameleon, and a Scissors Skills Workshop with Scissor Warehouse learning industry essentials such as how to properly balance scissors.

All of the learners’ hard work paid off and culminated in an impressive fashion shoot yesterday, to mark their final day with Skills Group. The shoot featured avant garde make-up and hair, and paper outfits the learners created themselves. The learners spent the week preparing their looks, bringing together all the industry skills that they developed.

Zoe Scarff, Hairdressing & Barbering Educator / Assessor at Skills Group, comments, “The learners worked really hard throughout their time with us. They developed a wide range of industry skills through access to our state of the art facilities and the chance to spend time with our brilliant employers. The fashion shoot was a great success, and showcased all the techniques they acquired over the three weeks”.
