HAIR AND BEAUTY TREATMENTS PROVIDED BY YES STUDENTS
The YES Centre Hair and Beauty Salon was a flurry of activity on Tuesday, July 3, 2018, when students held a Salon Day.
Students undertaking Certificate II Salon Assist and Certificate II in Retail Cosmetics had the opportunity to be part of a functioning salon by providing an array of treatments to PASS staff and students.
Students have learnt about treatments and services, and have been perfecting them, in the past one and a half terms. Course lecturer Mrs Kristy Kuhn supervised students.
“Once the students are competent performing treatments such as hair straightening, paraffin manicures and facials, we open our salon to simulate an actual salon environment, allowing students the experience of working with paying customers and developing communication skills,” Mrs Kuhn said.
“This experience allows the students to not only work on new clients but also allows them to gain experience in customer service and cash handling, which are vital skills in any successful salon.”
“We thank staff for their continual support, as this could not happen without you.”
Year 11 student Emiley Sheumack, who is studying Certificate II in Retail Cosmetics, said the salon day allowed her to check off some required practical skills in her course.
She said she enjoyed the day providing manicures, hair straightening and facials to clients.
“The most valuable part of the experience was being able to perform the skills that were learnt on actual clients and not just practising on fellow students,” Emiley said.
