On Tuesday 22nd September, a star studded line up including Samantha Harris and Casey Donovan, attended the 17th Annual Deadly Awards at the Sydney Opera House. Sporting the latest makeup and hair trends styled by over 50 of the Australasian College Broadway’s hair and beauty students along with their educators, the stars were out to shine.
Volunteering their time to style over 110 attendees for the night, the students worked their hair and makeup magic on the evening’s performers, hosts, presenters and judges of the Awards. Students were given a once in a lifetime opportunity to work on some of the biggest celebrity names in Australia such Christine Anu, Troy Cassar-Daley and Peter Morrisey.
The Deadly Awards recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to the Australian Society. In addition to rewarding the best names in sports, music, entertainment and community work, the Deadlys aspire to create identifiable role models for indigenous youth.
Chairman and Founding Director of Australasian College Broadway, Maureen Houssein-Mustafa OAM said the partnership between the Australasian College Broadway and the Deadly Awards has been of great benefit to both organisations.
“The students were very excited to have access to such high profile clients for an afternoon. This experience exposes them to the ‘behind the scenes’ workings of a high profile event where their skills are tested under the limelight,” Ms. Houssein-Mustafa said.
“The Australasian College Broadway trains its students to be job ready in a simulated work environment for more than half of the student course. This training allows them to step directly out of the classroom and work with clients of this calibre immediately. When students graduate and enter the workforce they are more than qualified, with plenty of practical experience under their belt to step directly into a great position.”
