We were thrilled to see our TYs return for in-person classes after the Easter break and to see them enjoy the traditional mix of classroom learning and practical workshops. The girls enjoyed the always popular “Rootine” haircare workshop with Anne O’Reilly.


Anne brought along her trusty collection of mannequin heads for the girls to trial and perfect a number of intricate plaits and up-dos, including French, fishtail and Celtic styles. She also brought the girls through the dos and don’ts of their own haircare routines and highlighted best practice in terms of appropriate products, cuts, colouring and diet, in order to maintain healthy locks. Marketing skills were also developed as the girls competed to come up with a new brand of shampoo.

The girls really enjoyed the workshop and the opportunity to develop new personal skills. Thank you to Anne for working with our students and we look forward to welcoming her back to the Bower again soon.
