TY Hair Care
On the morning of 13th April, Eleanor Power of the Colour Room Dungarvan spoke to both TY classes about hair care. We discussed the care of our hair and learned that the necessary amount of shampoo is only a pea size. She advised on dying hair and about the care of roots and re-dying. Before Eleanor finished she demonstrated the art of perfect GHD curls and we even got to try ourselves. We also had the opportunity to ask her any questions we had.
