FORMER STUDENT RUNS HAIR AND BEAUTY WORKSHOPS
Mrs O’Malley is developing our extra-curricular offer and has been linking with professionals who are involved in hair and make-up in the local area who may consider coming to school to speak to students with an interest in hair and beauty.
She came across Kate Howard who attended Richmond School and Sixth Form College from 2007 to 2014 and now runs her own hair and beauty business, specialising in the bridal sector.
Kate kindly volunteered to lead a five-week project to allow students to not only gain an understanding about the hair and beauty industry but also to provide students with the skills to facilitate our shows in school. Students have been perfecting up-dos, blending techniques, eye make-up design, as well as health and safety. We currently have 27 students in Years 9 and 10 taking part.
Mrs. O’Malley said: “Kate has always been a very creative person and I am so glad we have had the pleasure to invite her into school to share her knowledge and experience with the students. Kate’s expertise has inspired so many students to learn new skills and enhance their techniques to support events we run in school. This has been a great experience for them to gain an insight into the industry and they are raving about the project when I see them. The students and I are so appreciative of the time Kate has dedicated to us.
“It is lovely to welcome back a student who always thrived in excellence and creativity and is now bringing her expertise into her own business which she has worked so hard for. If you have any events that you need a hair or make-up artist for, Kate is extremely reliable and very talented. Thank you so much for your time, Kate, and I hope we can see you again in the future.”
