Hair and flair order of evening

STUDENTS of the Federation Training’s Leongatha hairdressing and hospitality departments showed off their amazing skills last Wednesday at a gala night.
A parade of hair fashion through the ages was accompanied by a three course meal at Wildflower Cafe, all provided by students.
Hairdressing teacher Jan-Maree Constantine said the event was part of student’s studies.
“Each student was given a different era between the 1900 and today, and were asked to create an inspiration board based on the era,” she said.
“The hair, makeup and outfit chosen for the gala evening had to reflect the inspiration board.”
Ms Constantine said the evening, which was an inaugural event, was a great way for the hairdressing students to showcase their skills to the community.
Twenty two hairdressing students from certificate II, certificate III and apprenticeship classes were involved.
Linda Austin is the front of house teacher and Jacki Driscoll is the cookery teacher at the Leongatha campus, and both were present on the night to supervise the hospitality students.
Leongatha’s education coordinator, Sheree Wells said the gala night provided an opportunity for students to show what they have learnt.
“The students are so pumped. They were here the whole day preparing for the evening,” she said.
“They have all been very dedicated and committed to the project right from the start.”
