Creativity at TAFE is a bit hairy

THERE was a cloud of hairspray hovering over Bundaberg TAFE yesterday as hairdressing students prepared their models for the stage.

The annual Bundaberg Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Hairshow was held last night to a sold-out crowd.

The event was a showcase of work by hair and make-up students.

TAFE team leader of hair and beauty Karen Phillips said the show was a good chance for students to get creative with their designs.

“They get to do really different stuff with their models for the show, which is really good for hairdressers,” she said.

“This creative stuff is just so much fun.

“We usually only get to do the normal things but this it out there.”

Mrs Phillips has been teaching at the TAFE since 2002 and said students always look forward to the show.

“I have level-one apprentices already thinking about what they will be doing when it is their turn to present their work,” she said.

Deeann Reid was just one excited certificate-three student to showcase her work last night.

“It's been a big lead-up and very turbulent,” Miss Reid said.

The aspiring hairdresser spent a lot of time creating her five designs.

“I had a think about what I would like done to my own hair and then mixed it with ideas and things I had gotten from magazines,” she said.

“My theme is gothic so it has been fun to work with.”

The event, which began in 2002, includes dancing, skits and fashion and has become more popular with each year.

Students and teachers already look forward to the 2010 show.
