A hair training workshop is another DFF Skills Development Initiative


EThekwini Municipality’s Durban Fashion Fair (DFF) recently launched another initiative to provide training in the creative sector, that of a three day hair training workshop in partnership with Sofn’ Free.


The aim of the workshop was to up skill local hairstylists with fundamental hairstyling techniques to provide them with industry trends and expertise to sustain and increase their knowledge. In addition to this, is to assist hairstylists to grow their business within their chosen field of hair dressing.

During the workshop, training provided included that of theory as well as practical exercises, educating the participating hairdressers on various hair products as well as showcased a number of the latest hair trends.

The hairstylists were also provided the opportunity to perfect cutting techniques, blow-drying for all hair types, styling for “all occasions”, as well as learning to create the perfect avant-garde look.

A total of twenty hairdressers participated and were then judged by top hair stylists, Musa Gcaba from Sofn’ Free and Ricci Pillay from the Coastal KZN TVET College - Durban Campus who were given the difficult task of selecting the top three who then received a Sofn’ Free hamper. 

The overall consensus from all the participants was a positive one, with all having enjoyed the experience, found it to be very informative and beneficial and one even joked what a fun “hair raising” experience she had.
