SIT students do well at hairstylist of the year awards

Three full time students from Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) have competed and done extremely well at the New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers (NZARH) Regional Hairstylist of the year awards.

The students, Kammy Corbin, Courtney Kelly and Holly Eade are currently completing their studies in the New Zealand Certificate in Hairdressing (Salon Support) and (Emerging Stylist) qualifications. Representing their salons (Fred and Ginger’s Hair and Beauty) and (Do Hair), they competed against many others in the Next Generation sections and took out several first and second placings in various events.

A huge amount of help and encouragement was given by the students’ tutors at SIT as well as their salons, and they did themselves, their salons and SIT proud.

Holly Eade was named Southland’s Next Generation stylist for 2017 and will be competing in the Supreme Hairdressing awards in Hamilton in October.
