BLU Gel apprentice, Shana-lee van der Byl, has been selected to compete in the national round of the WorldSkills hairdressing competition next month at the Durban International Conference Centre. She is the only finalist from KwaZulu-Natal.

She has been an apprentice for the past two years and has another two to go. Her tasks on entering the competition were to come up with four styles that represent different aspects in hairdressing.

Van der Byl has been attending workshops for the past year in Musgrave, Durban every week getting a taste of various hairdressing styles as well as working full-time at Blu Gel.

“I didn’t know initially that I was the only one from KZN who was chosen. It’s amazing to be the only one and to know that people recognised my skill at being different. My ultimate goal is to own my own salon, but not in this country,” she said.
