We all have bad hair days, and this event could teach you the skills to combat it or even better give you the change to meet the hair solution stars of the future! Come and meet your local Hair Academy and learn how hard the students have to work to gain the skills and expertise needed to be in control of our hair.
The aim of this event is to have fun whilst raising money for a scholarship for a talented budding new hairdresser. It would be an absolute pleasure if you would support this event and join in the many activities on the evening. We appreciate your help!
Local MP Amber Rudd recently visited the Elite Hair Academy (EHA) on Bohemia Road in Hastings to listen to the inspirational story of Linda Smith and the vision behind the EHA.
Amber said, “I was completely inspired by Linda’s story and the way in which she has gone from Salon owner to Hair Academy Director. She is now imparting her experience and talent on to the next generation of budding barbers and hairdressers. This is a great Academy and a great vision, all thanks to the determination and drive of Linda.”
There are currently 39 students enrolled on the two year course. The aim of EHA is to have 50 students enrolled and working towards their qualifications. So far everyone that has taken on the training course has gone into jobs following on from it. EHA are also setting up a scholarship programme this year for those that are struggling to find a way into the hair and beauty industry and need some assistance.
“This scholarship programme is a great idea. I fully support the initiative that Linda has set up and I’ll do all I can to promote it. I understand the difficulties that some people face in cutting a path into these competitive industries so the help that Linda is offering through this scholarship will make such a difference to someone. This is a fantastic idea,” commented Amber.
EHA are holding a show case on Monday 30th June to raise money for a scholarship to help support those that want to make a career in the hair and beauty industry. The show case is being held at the Montgomery Suite, Bannatynes Hotel from 7pm-11pm, tickets are available from Unique Hair Studio – 9 Parkstone Road, Hastings, TN34 2PS and Elite Hair Academy – 64 Bohemia Road, St Leonards-on-sea, East Sussex, TN37 6RQ.
