There’s an amazing digital event coming up on Monday 8 June organised by Sharon Blain and Box Hill Institute.
This event was to be on stage at Hair Expo but it’s now digital instead. It is to inspire people into the industry and our young apprentices so that they remain.
All who love hair fashion, hairdressers or general public are welcome to buy a ticket and come along. All involved are doing this purely to support the industry.
Let’s face it, how often can you go to a Hair Expo event without leaving home?
Sharon Blain Education and Box Hill Institute have teamed up to produce a three-hour online hairdressing extravaganza on Monday 8 June from 11am to 2pm. Virtual Hair Experience: Journey to the Top will feature industry luminaries telling inspiring stories about their path to the top of the hairdressing field and edge-of-fashion, creative hairstyling.
Organisers are expecting Hair House Parties to crop up all over the country as everyone interested in hair fashion or passionate about hairdressing join in the fun.
Tickets for $20AUD can be purchased online:
Facebook & Instagram @VirtualHairExperienceEvent co-producer Sharon Blain said that the invited hairdressers jumped at the chance to encourage young hairdressers and those considering hairdressing as a career.
She said, “Hairdressing is one of the most exciting, creative careers in the world and the opportunities behind and beyond the chair are huge, these days. “I really want young people to understand that the hairdressing business has real, ongoing rewards. They can have influence on hair fashion globally, help clients feel good about themselves, educate and inspire others, get sensational session experiences around the world and achieve material success, particularly as salon owners.
”Box Hill Institute’s Executive Director Educational Delivery, Jane Trewin, is co-producing the event and said that it is time for apprentices and potential new artists to see the industry’s brilliance and endless opportunities. She said, “The purpose of the event is to motivate young people to join or remain in the industry as it would be hard to find a more rewarding or artistic career. It’s also important for us to support industry by demonstrating how rewarding, interesting and inspirational a career it can be.
