Box Hill Institute Hairdressing Featured at National Skills Week

Hairdressing students showcased just how bright the future of our industry is, presenting their work at the official launch of National Skills Week held at Box Hill Institute’s Nelson Campus. The group created a creative and inspiring body of work for industry leaders and VIP guests in attendance.

“Box Hill Institute hairdressing students created an avant garde, flame-inspired hairstyles to marry with make up by our beauty students which complemented garments by award-winning fashion alumnus, Tess Whitfort,” said Head of Hair and Beauty, Ruth Browne. “The collaboration of our creative industries made for a brilliant night, capped off with music by students training in our new multi-million dollar music studios.”

The Victorian Minister for Training and Skills, Gayle Tierney was the guest of honour, viewing skills showcased by all industries in the education institution. The evening was also attended by industry leaders and partners of Box Hill Institute including Skills One CEO, Brian Wexham.

The show also presented butterfly-themed body painting by industry partner, Kryolan, which complemented hair looks that were both creative and efficient in keeping hair out of the way of this interesting beauty choice.

The go-to style was a French braid along the front hairline, which allowed for intricate skill but also showed off the bold and innovative fantasy makeup without detracting from it.

The day also highlighted the new Barbershop @BHI, which was open for business with students demonstrating their newfound barbering skills on clients and guests.

Imaginative, interesting and relevant hair wowed guests and reminded us how much talent is constantly on the rise. Great job students of Box Hill!
