Apprentice works on top fashion models

 Local hairdresser Clare Deans, 19, of Gazebo Hair, has capped off her three-year apprenticeship with a remarkable week of experiences to add to her résumé.From May 16-21, Miss Deans and business owner Andrew Eade worked with some of the world’s most famous models at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney.Together they worked on countless models’ hair in what was Miss Deans’ first business trip."It was very full-on. There was a lot of preparation time that we had to do beforehand," Miss Deans said."On average it was about four hours of prep for a 10-minute show."Many of the models were easy to work with."Miss Deans said while she spent most of the week backstage, she did get to sit in the audience and watch one of the fashion shows.While this was her first fashion show, Mr Eade has been working at the international fashion show since 2005."He has been going for the last 12 years. I think he really enjoys it, as it’s very different to a salon environment."Hopefully I can go again next year.
