March Recap

What a beautiful month we had here in Calgary. The sun was shining, and the birds were chirping, and the college was in full swing.

What did we get up to?

We kept up with our #TalentTuesday posts, featuring our student’s work

Some awards were handed out to recognize the hard work and dedication of our students

Our May Hair Design class had a photo shoot. Here are some shots from the shoot. A huge thank you to Brandon Shaw at Analog Dog Creative for some amazing shots!

We celebrated International Women’s Day. As an education facility that is designated by the Alberta government to accept international students, we see women (and men) from all over the world come through our doors. The beauty industry empowers women around the world every day, and we totally agree with the 2016 #PledgeForParity campaign.

We welcomed a brand new group of students into our March Hair Design program. They have been learning so much already, and we cannot wait to see their talent’s emerge.

Our Professional Esthetics students and our Clinical Esthetics students took a field trip to check out Body Worlds Vital at Telus Spark.

It technically happened at the end of February… but Hair Design student, Youssef traveled to Toronto to see the ABA show and take in some additional education in barbering. Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

We posted, and reposted, a lot of really great student work from all departments

We made a big class announcement and blogged about it. If you missed our post all about the evolution of lash extensions, click here.

We received some wonderful reviews on Google and had a huge shout out on Instagram from one of our students. Thank you to all who left a review!

We have to give a really special shout out to two of grads, Anne and Kathy, for graduating with honours. Great work ladies!


To all of you out there that are having a hard time in this current economic situation, we feel for you. There isn’t really a profession that has not been affected by this downturn. So, how do we cope? I sat down with one of our recent graduates and asked that very question. If you missed that post, click here to see how some innovative thinking has gotten Samantha Ponce through.

I just love writing these recaps every month. I am reminded of what an amazing group of individuals we have here at Delmar, and it always brightens my day. Can’t wait to see what April brings…
