A HAIRY encounter of TAFE students and industry professionals saw braids and fringes and well-styled tresses.

Kingscliff TAFE hairdressing students Aelwen Whitaker and Jacob Dawes showcased their talents at the 2010 North Coast TAFE Hair Extravaganza, held at the Brunswick Heads Bowls Club recently.

More than 40 students from Kingscliff and Wollongbar TAFE demonstrated their skills to friends, family and industry representatives.

Ms Whitaker runs her own at-home and mobile salon when not at TAFE , and is in the final stages of a Certificate 4 in hairdressing.

“The Hair Extravaganza was a great opportunity to demonstrate the skills I have learnt over the past three years,” Ms Whitaker said.

“You don’t often get an opportunity to challenge yourself and showcase the results.”

Kingscliff TAFE hairdressing teacher Chris Edmeades said the extravaganza was the culmination of a year of hard work.

“All the guys had a lot of fun on the night and it was a great opportunity for our students to showcase their skill, creativity and talent,” Ms Edmeades said.

“The courses offered at Kingscliff TAFE are very hands on, and the students get a lot of practical experience.

“We have a salon at the campus that is open every day, so students get to work on real clients.”
