Industry professionals gathered for the launch of the Kangan Institute Hair and Beauty Training Salon at the Centre for Fashion and Creative Industries in Melbourne earlier this month.
Using scissors of a different kind was special guest, hair dressing guru Joey Scandizzo, who did the honours of cutting the ribbon with Centre for Fashion and Creative Industries manager, Odile Higgins.
The campus is a fashion precinct that provides students with a holistic understanding of the important relationship between fashion and retail. “They understand the interrelationship between different areas of the industry and how they contribute to a business,” Odile said.
It offers complete training for apprentices and trainees as well as full time courses in makeup and skincare, nail technology, beauty services and hairdressing.
Guests from the hair and beauty industry including salon owners, hairdressers and beauty experts, toured the boutique Richmond campus to get an idea of how the campus has been developed as a fashion and retail centre where students can learn all about the industry.
