The Cold and the Beautiful: January at Delmar


What a strange month. It goes from a celebration to extreme cold and darkness, and then just when you think “why do I live here?!?!?” the sun starts to show itself a little more each day, and spring doesn’t seem like a far away dream anymore.

They say January can be the hardest month of the year for so many so we really tried to keep spirits high around the college and celebrate as many successes as possible.

So, without further ado, here is a recap of January at Delmar

We started the year off with a bang and a question: what do you think will be the top beauty trends in 2016?


We featured more pics of our students showing what was a huge trend for 2015, and may have staying power into 2016: the top knot. Yep, #TopKnotTuesday is our thing now.


Top knots aside, some of our students started 2016 out with a new look (courtesy of each other).


We said goodbye to our September 2015 Clinical Esthetics class. Congratulations to Becky, Sam, May, Natasha, Sydney, Chelsea, and Diana. We will miss you all!


As usual, we featured some student work (our favourite thing to do). Remember to use #delmarlifeYYC on your work to be featured.

We flashed back to some past makeup student work and welcomed the start of a new Makeup 101 class.

And while we’re on the topic of student work and flashing back, Maricel had the opportunity to catch up with Delmar Hair Design alumni, Farron Maclean. If you missed that post just click here to link to it.

And we couldn’t resist celebrating our January babies. Happy birthday to all staff and students who were born in January.


And last, but definitely not least, we have to talk about Donna.


Donna Robbins has been a teacher with Delmar for 43 years. She is, quite honestly, one of the most influential people in the Alberta beauty industry EVER. We are so ecstatic to announce that she has been awarded the 2015 Top Instructor Award for southern Alberta through the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board Awards. This is the very first time in the history of the awards that it has been awarded to someone in the hair styling trade. Thank you Donna for all the amazing and inspirational things you have contributed to this industry. You are a mentor to many.

What a great month it has been!
