We cannot contain our pride as what started off as an ordinary pea of idea has steadily metamorphosed into a life-changing project for Nigerian youth who have chosen a path in hairstyling. Loads of entries were received, 15 students followed through, it clearly shows dedication and hard work on their part, so we celebrate every one of them. We are most confident that they will excel out there as they have learned from the best hands in the industry.”

The graduates were all looking radiant, beautifully clad in black attire paired with brand colour-inspired stole uniformly hanged around their neck. They were formally presented with certificates in bridal styling and a parting gift from the Lush brand to start off their businesses.
