Hair raising experience

IT WAS hair, hair, everywhere at the Brunswick Heads Bowling Club this week as hairdressing students from across the region took part in the bi-annual Hair Extravaganza.

With their models primped and preened to perfection, TAFE students from Wollongbar and Kingscliff campuses showcased their creative talents to an audience of industry professionals.

The categories were cut and colour, formal/wedding and avant-garde, with a special open section for students who have recently finished their studies.

Head teacher of hairdressing and beauty therapy at Kingscliff and Wollongbar TAFE, Betty Rensink, said the extravaganza was non-completive and gave students the chance to show off their creativity.

It also allowed them to network with potential employers.

Mr Rensink said a creative team would be also selected from the night to attend the state-wide International Hairdressing Society battle of the TAFE colleges in Sydney.
