Sharon Blain Wizz Kid Mentoring Programme


Conventional teaching methods have their merit, but stepping out of the classroom and into the exciting world that exists backstage at a fashion show is highly stimulating and a great learning experience too, writes Shannon Gaitz.

If you’re a student, apprentice or hairdresser with fewer than 8 years of experience, you now have the chance to shadow the very best in education in this exciting environment. Sharon Blain Art of Education, in conjunction with our own publication, INSTYLE magazine, is offering this opportunity through the Wizz Kid Mentoring Programme competition.

The entry process consists of sending a profile of yourself, creative portfolio of work, your college achievement and 150-words as to why you should win the chance to spend a weekend with Sharon Blain and her team.

The agenda is comprised of backstage preparations for hair shows, seminars and events, with flights, accommodation and entry valued at over $3000. Winners will also gain entry into a full day workshop, which will simultaneously serve as the launch of Sharon Blain’s new collection, Vintage Revamped, and entry to the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards dinner.

Three runners up will recieve a pack of Sharon Blain educational products valued at $300, a 12 month INSTYLE magazine subscription and a 12 month subscription to Styleicons Education online learning website.

A similar competition last year – the Sharon Blain Rising Star Scholarship – was a huge success, with the winner, Melissa Heinson, benefitting tremendously from her time at Sharon Blain Boot Camp.

Entries are due by the 1st of April 2014 and the winner and runners-up will be announced in INSTYLE’s May 2014 issue, so don’t miss out on the chance to be backstage with the best in hair education.
