As good job opportunities within the country and abroad await trained hairdressers and beauty therapists, participants at the competitions in the ongoing India Skills Kerala 2020 are vying for honours with enthusiasm.
The contests in these disciplines were held today, as the zonal competitions of India Skills Kerala 2020, being organized by Industrial Training Department and Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (both under the State Labour and Skills Department), reached the final lap.
The competitions in Beauty Therapy and Hairdressing were conducted with the support of VLCC Beauty Parlour, which provided tools and other materials. The contests were held in different modules of beauty therapy such a facial treatment, manicure nail art and simple party make-up. The evaluation is being done, based on six factors that include dexterity in use of tools and pleasing client dealing.
The hairdressing competition covered activities such as hair-conditioning and hair-styling. There is also a question-answer segment, which carries separate marks. The winners of the zonal contests will be selected to a grand finale of India Skill Kerala 2020, to be held in Kozhikode during February 22-24.
