It's trick or treat time!

Today was FUN! 
We started our total looks unit and decided since it was near Halloween, that's what we would do.
Lisa had a box full of fabric and bits and pieces and we soon dug in.

We worked in small groups with one model and two stylists.

Hassan, James and Holly made a scary mummy!

Sophie, Jade and Amy made a blood thirsty vampire.

Paige, Chloe and Ella made an awesome red witch.

Georgina, Roxy and Lydia made an evil devil girl! 

Here we are together.
Trick or treat anyone?

Teamwork and building confidence.

Today we took a trip into our local town to test out our questionairres.
We are are armed with clipboards and pens.

We were all nervous at first but slowly managed to pluck up the courage to ask the public some of our questions.

It was so cold we decided to warm up and discuss our findings in Costa coffee.

Back at college we had chance to write up what we found and we are now ready to complete our assignment! 
We never thought we would be able to talk to the public like we did. 
Not a bad day at all.

Hand Care

We had a lovely relaxing morning this morning. 
We learnt how to do hand massages. There are lots of different techniques to learn but watching a video and helping each other we soon got through. 


Our kits have arrived!
We were so excited looking through all our things. We can't wait to try them out, especially the scissors!

Making waves

Today we had our first experience of roller setting.
At first we weren't sure we would ever use this technique but we soon changed our minds.

You can make all kinds of styles and it's the same technique as perming. That soon got James working.
But he wasn't sure what to do with his net?

And Ella must have been gripping her rollers to make her hands bleed!

But we managed to do all these different looks

What do you think?

Team building the fencing way!

We had our first team building session today with Alexis and we did some fencing!

We tried some techniques first.

Then we got our vests on.

Then we got into battle!

All good fun.

Team building works!

Consultation techniques.

We were learning today about consultations and how to get the best out of them.
We did a fun describing activity. We had to sit back to back and try to describe a group of shapes and get the other person to draw it.

Some of us struggled at first....
Imagine if you were describing how you want your hair cut! 

But we got there in the end!
