How do you kick start a future career in Hairstyling? A trip to Las Vegas for the biggest night in the Beauty Industry! ✈️ 👯
From July 23 to 26, over 70 MC College students and staff made their way to Las Vegas for the 11th annual MCxNAHA show and 27th annual North American Hairstyling Awards (aka. NAHA). Every student that enrolled in the June Hairstyling program went on this trip for FREE. The plane was filled with shadow roots, undercuts and candy colored hair.
At this years’ MCxNAHA show, we had a surprise guest speaker from Kansas; 2016 NAHA Master Hairstylist of the Year nominee….👉ERIC FISHER👈! He even invited our students to be part of his master long hair styling and haircutting class at no charge. 🙌
Throughout the MC show, we had 3 presentations for the students.
1). Hair Improv 💇 presented by Yolly Ten Koppel (Artistic Director, Pivot Point International) and Laddie James (Owner and Master Stylist, The Hairstyle Inn).

From Luxor hotel to Mandalay Bay, we marched to the NAHA’s in our 👠 and on point hair; turning heads from blackjack and poker tables. The NAHA awards ceremony featured littt up 🔥 artistic presentations and endless amounts of inspiration.
The students had the opportunity to network with artists such as Babak, Edward Woody (Avant Garde Winner) and Matt Swinney (Hairstylist of the Year) to name a few.
