Shear Magic

The 2017/2018 Hairdressing Students.

The NPSS Hairdressing students have covered many topics as part of their apprenticeship so far this year. Students have learned how to do perms, colors and correcting, short and long hairstyles, and haircuts for both men and women. When asked what they like about the course, the students eagerly offered many responses: “I like not having to sit at a desk all day”, “Ms. Myllymaki is the best teacher, she’s fun and friendly”. “I like that this is hands-on”. Nekeesha Holden responded with “Without a doubt, I prefer this class to all the others I’ve taken. It’s the best”. The students appreciate the skills they’re being taught and like the fact that they will leave school with work experience in a profession they enjoy. Brianna Casner explained “I love this job and can see doing this still 5 years from now. I also want to do makeup and airbrushing too.”

The students are accepting clients and appointments can be booked through the school: 250-785-4429, extension 317. Shear Magic can be also be found on Facebook.

Winter is here.

Thank you to the photographers Juston Kewin and Carson Saunders.

Snow is often on the ground by November in Fort St. John. So far this year we had a nasty dump of snow during the last week of October, but it all melted by Halloween. It feels like the cold is now here to stay, however. Today the wind died out and the fog blanketed the trees with frost. It’s a winter wonderland out there, and the school is all the prettier for it.

A gentle reminder to parents and students; as the temperature drops students need to ensure they are wearing clothing appropriate for the season.
