Hair & Beauty Employer Day

Published 15 January


The annual Hair and Beauty Employer Day took place at our High Street campus yesterday where a number of guest speakers were invited into the salon to hold a variety of industry and employment themed workshops and lectures.

This year we had Sienna X Spray Tanning who ran training sessions with students. Matrix Hair came in to demonstrate their new SoColor Cult range of hair colour. Salon Promotions came in to demonstrate the new Neal and Wolf hair colour range and curlbar hair curling techniques. Ashley Howard of Scissorhands ran a motivational lecture and a precision cutting workshop.

We were thrilled to welcome back Catherine Lawson, who studied Level 3 Nail Services back in 2015/2016. She has just opened her own salon “Catherine Lawson- Do my Nails” in Colne and came in to talk to the students about her journey towards setting up her own business. Catherine also kindly demonstrated some nail art techniques.

Hairdressing tutor, Diane Elwiss, said: “Employer Day is a great opportunity for students to interact with employers and educators and learn new skills and use the latest products. It was exciting to work with the new Matrix hair colour range which is so vibrant and on trend.”
