Hygiene Matters in Hairdressing
The success of the Hornchurch College of Further Education hairdressing courses was demonstrated last week when prizes were presented by Mr. David Adamson, National President of the Hairdressing Federation.

Mr. P. Coe, chairman of the college hairdressing Advisory Committee, remarked that when the courses began three years ago it was never dreamed they would be such a success.

Yet today there are first class examination results, four types of course are planned for next year and employers are rapidly coming to appreciate the value of sending young apprentices to the college.

Mr. Adamson urged the apprentices to take advantage of the opportunities offered. He said the ancillary parts of the course were as important as practical salon work. In particular, he remarked: “Hygiene is far different from grandad’s day”.
