23 Mar 2013

NMIT Certificate IV in Hairdressing students will be going all out to shock their audience at their end-of-year hair show called Earth, Wind and Fire.

With hair styles with names like Tornado, The Earth's Globe, Wild Jungle and Blazing Fires the show is bound to produce gasps and applause as the students showcase hair designs that verge on architectural wonders as part of their final assessment.

The show is being staged as part of a larger event known as Shear Elegance coordinated by NMIT Diploma of Events students featuring hair shows, fashion and photography.

In the audience will be representatives from the Hairdressing Industry including De Lorenzo and Alfa Parf along with family and friends of the students plus NMIT senior management including CEO, Dr Andy Giddy.

“The show has been put together by the students with the help from our teachers,” said Certificate IV in Hairdressing student, Jackie Albrecht. “We have broadened our skills, made some great friends and also had the pleasure of working with fantastic teachers who have been very supportive during the process. NMIT has moulded us all individually and inspired us to pursue our career paths.”
