We had a lot of very exciting things happen around the college in April and May, and we think it’s time for a little recap.
From the Skills Alberta Aesthetics competition to the Edmonton ABA’s, a lot of our students and staff got into competition mode and represented us well.
Hair Instructor, Brittany Connors took a silver medal at the Edmonton ABA show
Hair student’s, Youssef and Taylor both took 13th place in the Battle of the Barbers. Read more about it here.
Esthetics student Jordan competed at Skills Alberta and took gold in the Aesthetics division. She now is moving on to represent us on Team Alberta and compete at the Skills Canada competition in June. Read about her journey here.
We posted a ton of student work. Here’s just a sample
We stuck to one of our root values of giving back to the community by volunteering at a couple of events. One was a head shave challenge for Kids Cancer Care, and the other was an event to help women build up their confidence, hosted by the Elizabeth Fry Society.
Our very own Donna was presented with the 2015 Top Instructor Award for southern Alberta through the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board
Our classes are fun! Even when it’s the serious stuff
Some of our staff and students attended the World of Wella show in April
And then we attended the Modern Rocks the Runway show in May
We had a wonderful time hosting the Regional Skills Alberta Hairstyling competition for Southern Alberta
We had so much fun doing the hair and makeup for the Miss Teen Calgary and Miss Calgary pageants
Our September and June Hair Design classes had their final photo shoot. We are so proud of them and all the hard work they put into it. Here are just a few of those images. If you are interested in seeing more click here. Thank you to Brandon Shaw at Analog Dog Creative for being our photographer.
We also have to send out a huge congratulations to both of those classes for finishing their 1400 hour hair programs
Tonight marks our first ever mixed graduation ceremony. It will be awesome to see some faces we may not have seen in the past few weeks, and to have all of our Hair Design, Esthetics, Clinical Esthetics, and Nail Tech grads under one roof. Stay tuned for next weeks blog were we tell you all about it.
