LârShar prides itself on professional reputation
AT LârShar College of Beauté and Hair all students are given a chance to explore their creative avenues while also obtaining a qualification.
The college is located at 3/38 Tank St in Gladstone and has been running for five years.
LârShar provides nationally recognised programs in nail technology, beauty services, beauty therapy, make-up and skin care, high school programs and hairdressing.
Trainer/assessor/co-owner of LârShar College of Beauté and Hair Larissa Dobbrick said the business was highly regarded in the Gladstone region.
"The most rewarding part of my job is getting daily phone calls from industry requesting our students for employment. That is the best feeling in the world," Mrs Dobbrick said.
"We want everybody to think wow, that hair and beauty college not only has a professional reputation second to none but has an amazing environment that I want to be a part of."
The aim of the business is for students to work towards a certificate or traineeship to prepare them for full-time work in other salons.
Mrs Dobbrick said the style of teaching she and Sharron Ward delivered worked effectively.
"Both Sharron and myself have worked in large government training organisations where at times we have had 28 students in a class," she said.
"It is impossible to deliver one-on-one training and assessing with that amount of students in a class.
"Now having our own private training college we limit class numbers to offer one-on-one training."
For those people who are interested in learning about the hair and beauty industry, it's not too late to do something about it.
"You are never too old to learn something new. If you have always wanted to but have never had the time or confidence to do it, do it now! Reward yourself because learning is for life," Mrs Dobbrick said.
