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 http://corcorz.com for the opportunity and supporting BSH students.

This event is a major fundraiser for the AEIOU Foundation http://aeiou.org.au 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”.
