Recently, three West Georgia Technical College cosmetology students along with cosmetology instructor Amina Blackmon attended the Premiere Orlando Hair Show in Orlando, Fla.

“West Georgia Technical College is committed to offering the type of fast-paced, hands-on, real world education that people need to be competitive in today’s job market,” said President Steve G. Daniel. “This show is an invaluable learning experience for our students and will help impact their professional lives.”

The Murphy Campus students, Shawanna Harris, Courtney Baxter and Taylor Jordan, were able to attend various classes from educators across the country. The classes ranged from simple hair care, hair color placement to camouflage thinning hair, fantasy make up, interlocking and tape techniques for artificial hair extensions, and smoothing treatments for frizzy hair. The students also had the opportunity to take a class with a celebrity hair stylist from Atlanta. “I learned that hair can be fun. I also learned to be creative and confident. I can believe and achieve whatever I set out to do,” said Harris. “Hair has to be your passion. The show reignited my passion for hair.”

West Georgia Technical College cosmetology students are no strangers to attending hair shows. They regularly attend the Bronner Brothers Hair Show in Atlanta and the Premiere Birmingham Hair Show in addition to having industry professionals come into the classroom for in-school salon demos. The Premiere Orlando Hair Show was the first show they have attended in Florida.

“I believe attending shows motivates and reignites the passion for their career choice. It is important to stay current and abreast of the latest techniques and trends to better your current and future clientele base,” said Blackmon. “Attending the show allowed the students to see beyond the walls of the classroom and gave them a fresh perspective on their future goals.”
