The La Boutique team had a proud moment on Monday, with one of our star apprentices, Alison Ross, debuting her exceptional hairstyling skills in the hair show for the Gymea Tafe Awards night. The Show, centered around a mad house theme and set to Rihanna’s ‘Mad House’ had an eerily creepy-cool feel.

“I decided to basket weave after being inspired by Kenneth’s training, and researched more techniques on YouTube to try out at Tafe” Alison said. “I kept the weave tight around the head giving it a skullcap-like feel, and spaced it out over the face to give a caged vibe. Then I dragged the gel through the ends and let them hang, adding a wispy, crunchy, tortured effect.”
