North West College offers the full breadth of Adult learning opportunities, one of which is a pre-employment certificate program in Hairstyling, teaching students to perform techniques on hair, wigs, hairpieces, skin and nails.
Each year, the Hairstyling students are challenged to compete in a Fantasy Competition. Judged by a panel of experts, students submit mannequins finished with make-up, dressing, and unique hair design. The style must be original, fantasy and not a typical design for daytime or nighttime use. The entries are judged based on creativity, originality, impact, difficulty, form and balance.
The competition serves both as a unique way to cumulatively assess student skills learned in the program and a wonderful way to showcase their talents to the broader community – literally turning a trade into an art form!
