Grooming Kits To Help Youth Barbers

Proper grooming and professional appear­ance are important to create not just a positive impression but also gain respect in the workplace.

In a three-day training workshop held at the Fiji National University’s Nav­iti Centre in Lautoka, 20 unemployed youth from the greater Nadroga, Navosa, Ba and Ra provinces were told of the importance of a barber in our community.

“A barber is a person whose occupation is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style and shave men’s and boys’ hair so you will understand the role a barber or hair­dresser plays in our com­munities” said trainer Ms Rayelene Bennion.

Introducing participants to the basics of barbering, the National Training and Productivity Centre trainer articulated the importance of hygiene and infection control.

“The right tool for the right job is an important recommendation when barbering. It will help you groom your clients effec­tively and gives them sat­isfaction ensuring their return for the next haircut” Ms Bennion stressed to the youths.

The training, while em­phasising on the correct use of tools implements, equipment and products, also introduces partici­pants to learn basic men’s barbering haircuts, infec­tion control and safety measures, after care and retailing of after care prod­ucts.

Co-ordinated by the Min­istry of Youth and Sports, the training, while creat­ing a better pathway for success for the rural based youth, also helps them gain necessary skills and knowl­edge to start their own busi­nesses.
