Make waves at Winnipeg Technical College

Posted on 09 May 2013 by DELCommInc

Style it how you like, the simple truth is a quality education in hairstyling has never been more crucial than it is today. The anticipated retirement of a high percentage of baby boomers in the next 15 years forecasts a marked deficit in skilled trades workers in the province. This, paired with the recent advent and rise of the boutique salon in Manitoba, and society’s ever-increasing emphasis on health, happiness and personal wellbeing, means an enhanced demand for skilled and qualified stylists. Winnipeg Technical College (WTC)’s hairstyling program gives students everything they need to succeed in the field, enabling them to step straight out of the classroom and onto the salon floor.

10-1When Angie Hunt heard about a contest from Redken to style the hair for Canadian Hairdresser magazine, she never thought that she would be a regional winner two years in a row.

Hunt, an elite award-winning stylist at Chatters Salon and Beauty Supply on Empress, is a two-time regional winner of the Redken Cover Competition, where seven semi-finalists from across Canada are invited to Toronto’s Redken Exchange to compete in a $10,000 fashion photo shoot competition with mentors from the fashion industry.  The grand prize?  Style the cover of Canadian Hairdresser magazine for the December/January 2013 issue, a trip for two to New York City to attend training at Redken’s Exchange on 5th, and a photo shoot with Flare magazine.  In addition, the winner will be named as Redken Session’s Hairstylist of the Year.

Hunt travelled to Toronto in 2011 to compete in the challenge and she recently returned from Canada’s version of the Big Apple this summer after being a regional winner once again for the 2012 contest.  The $10,000 photo shoot included working with high-profile stylists and artists including fashion photographer John Van der Schilden, who recently shot the July cover of Elle Canada with Carrie Underwood; Rimmel London makeup artist Vanessa Jarman, who has worked on Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert; fashion guru stylist Jeremie Cote of Pascal & Jeremie Concepts; and Redken Global performing artist and freelance session stylist Brent Borreson.
