Abbey Gardens Beauty Pamper Day

26 April 2017

Hair and Beauty students at Community College Gippsland (CCG) are extending their skills and creativity by offering pamper days for community groups in 2017.

Residents of Abbey Gardens Aged Care in Warragul were treated to a visit by CCG staff and students who offered manicures and hair styling to treat residents.

CCG Hair and Beauty School program leader, Julie Welch, said it was a wonderful way for students to extend their skills and experience working with a range of different people, skin and hair types.

“It's also a great service for residents, especially those who are less mobile, to have salon staff and students come to them.”

“We plan to offer salon pampering one day each month to residents of Abbey Gardens which will also be an opportunity for students to build skills and develop client relationships with residents as they prepare for careers in the hair and beauty industry.”

Resident Joan Fletcher (pictured above) said she enjoyed the experience.

“It's difficult for me to paint my nails now so to have someone else provide a manicure was lovely.”

Marlene Davy said it was good to share time with young people.

“It's the first time I've had someone perform a manicure so it was a new experience for me."

Community College Gippsland’s Hair and Beauty School offers pamper days to community groups and organisations by arrangement. It also has Hair and Beauty Training salons at its Warragul Campus that are open to the public to attend by appointment.
