Hair Styling and Make Up Lessons
A hairdressing training program, was originally organized by a group from Guadalajara, and they trained 35 women in San Pedro Itzican, on how to cut hair. They gave them brushes, hairdryers and scissors, and 10 women are now trying to run their own businesses from their homes.
Those 10 women asked the Brigada for help in getting more supplies and training so that they can style hair. As Poco a Poco volunteers believe this is a project worth supporting, we found a trainer for them. But we are always looking for donated hair straighteners, hair curlers, heated rollers, styling brushes, gel, hair spray, shampoos, conditioners, or anything else you no longer use.
The women would also like to learn how to do make up, so make up supplies are also requested, as well as training. Other supplies could include nail varnish, towels, lipstick, make up, creams, etc. If you have any ideas on how to help, do contact us!
Poco a Poco approached, Rodrigo, of Innovacion Hair Stylists, of Ajijic, and he is kindly providing free training on hair styling and make up. His first visit to San Pedro was held on Monday, April 16 and continues most Mondays. Supplies are always needed!
We hope to get other hairstylists, make up artists, and trainers to teach manicures and pedicures, to also assist us with this project.
This is proving to be a very popular training course. At most sessions, there are at least 14 women attending, and they are looking forward to more training! Our grateful thanks to Rodrigo for helping these women!
