Award winner back on campus

Nick Chen, former BSH (International) student came back on campus today for a quick visit and catchup.

So what’s Nick been up to since graduating 5 years ago?

He has worked in several leading salons before moving on to the role of Education Supervisor for L’Oréal and an Educational Consultant for Kérastase (Taiwan).

He has arrived back in Brisbane to holiday and catch up with family and friends but not before co-ordinating the backstage activities at the L’Oréal Business Forum in Dubai for over 3000 hairdressers from 62 countries.

Nick loved his time at BSH and while studying with Queensland’s leading Hairdressing educator he won the 2010 Queen Plaza Avant-Garde Student Design Competition catapulting him on his path to success.

Nick will be coming back on campus January 8 to talk to our current students about our wonderful industry.

Welcome back and congratulations Nick.

Storm Hits

The severe storm that hit South East Queensland on 27 November managed to inflict some pain to our third floor classrooms, computer lab, staff and student breakout area and administration.

The lyrics from the Miley Cyrus song “it came in like a wrecking ball” seemed rather appropriate.

The rain, the wind but more so the hail caused wide spread damage to homes and business in and around Brisbane.

The photo attached shows some of the damage sustained to our third floor building.

Our staff and students were safe and unharmed (which is a blessing) and by Friday we were back at what we do best.

General Manager Tina Palazzotto said “it wreaked havoc for many and we are just happy that our staff and students are safe, we did sustain some damage but nothing that cannot be fixed or replaced”.

Mercedes Benz Melbourne Cup Gala

Brisbane School of Hairdressing students were recently selected to be involved in the Mercedes Benz Melbourne Cup Gala at the Brisbane City Hall as assistant session stylists. A big thank you must go to Carole Haddad, Corcorz Hair South Bank for the opportunity and supporting BSH students.

This event is a major fundraiser for the AEIOU Foundation and was compared by Channel 9 newsreader Melissa Downes.

The BSH students got to work backstage preparing the models under the tutelage of some of Queensland’s best stylists before they hit the catwalk in gowns designed by Alex Perry.

BSH Educator Donna Molloy said “this was a great opportunity to those selected and gave them a real taste of what it’s like to work at a very elite level”.

General Manager of BSH, Tina Palazzotto added “it’s an amazing opportunity for our students to be involved in an opportunity like this, it helps them understand the requirements of making it to the next level in our great industry”.

To check out all the action have a look at the Gala album on the BSH Facebook page
