Recently, second-year students from the BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance course were visited by inspirational hair stylist, Michelle Garande.

Michelle has won a string of awards in the hair world, which include ‘Braid Stylist of the Year 2015’ and ‘Avant Garde Stylist of the Year 2014’ at the Black Beauty/ Sensationnel Hair Awards.

During her visit, Michelle gave the BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance students a valuable Avant Garde hair masterclass, which included expert demonstrations of hair and braiding techniques. She went on to discuss her favourite materials to use in contemporary hair styling – all worthwhile tips for AUB’s aspiring hair stylists.

Second-year student, Rachael Britton, assisted Michelle with her demonstration. She had this to say about the experience and expertise gained:

“I thought she was very warm and welcoming. She explained what she was doing in a lot of detail making sure that the class saw everything that she was doing. I really enjoyed helping her and it’s helped me learn new techniques that I could use.”
