I enjoy working with my friends, sharing and gaining ideas from them. They help me when I’m unsure of something and I help them too. It boosts my confidence and helps me complete my work on time.
I enjoy creating different types of braids, shampoo and conditioning hair, doing blow dries. I also feel confident doing reception duties as I have experience from my work experience in a salon.
The teaching is great as I have Anne, my hairdressing lecturer. She helps me and my other classmates get through things we don’t understand and explains everything fully in detail.
For the competition I decided to do a fishtail and two braids on the sides. I sectioned the hair using a tail comb. I started braiding a fishtail braid from the crown down to the nape. Next, I created the braids on each side. I used a curling iron to get some bouncy curls. Finally finished it with hairspray to hold the style together and added some hair accessories. To go with the hairstyle, I added some eyeshadow and face pearls to add some sparkle. It took me around an hour and 15 minutes to construct.
When I found out I was selected for the final round I was super excited. I’ve already started looking for some ideas on YouTube for my second festival hairstyle.
The college set some targets for me to complete to help me reach my future goals. They have also provided me with information so I can make the right decision for the future.
Eventually, I’d like to work in a salon where I can use the knowledge I’ve gained at college to help customers and make them happy.
Where you study can be almost as important as what you study so I recommend you research carefully and choose something that you love and believe that in future, it will help you achieve your goals.
