Description

Join us for a 5 day Hair Aid International project in Guatemala, Central America.

Here's what your time with us will look like. We need you to be on the ground in Antigua by the Sunday before the project begins.

For those that choose to fly in on Saturday before the project, you can either 1) complete some private travel and sightseeing or 2) come straight to the accommodation, meet the Project Leader and any other volunteers already there, and do some sightseeing or shopping in and around the location before the project begins.

No matter what day you fly in, every volunteer will be met at the airport by local drivers, bringing them to the project accommodation.

Sunday morning: we do food shopping for the week's breakfasts and lunches and then find a nice place for lunch. After lunch, we wait for everyone on the project to arrive at the accommodation.

Sunday afternoon: once everyone is together, the project leader will do induction/cultural training, hand out team uniforms, go over the training manual, and answer any questions you might have. Teams are formed, and resources are packed. (Volunteers are placed in teams of 2-4 and will travel to locations daily as a group).

Monday morning: we eat breakfast at the accommodation, and then teams travel to the training location and begin the five-day training program. Every day a driver will take Hair Aid teams to and from the locations.

Monday morning: we teach how to use hair cutting tools, head shapes, how to section hair and how to do a straight cut. We work on live models. We usually gain models from the local community, friends or family, and even workers in local businesses. By the end of the first day, the trainees should have cut 2 – 3 straight cuts. We finish training at 4 pm each day. We take a break for lunch when it best suits the trainees.

On day 2, Tuesday we teach how to diagonal forward and backward and layers. Again, we train on live models so the trainees learn to cut real live people. By Tuesday afternoon the trainees should have cut 2-3 more hair cuts.

On Wednesday: we teach graduation/bob cut.
Thursday is when we teach men’s cuts. This is a wonderful day as many people have gained great skills by now and can confidently do 2 – 3 men’s cuts in a day!

On Friday, we demonstrate a few different styles, encouraging the learners to see what they can achieve with more practice. Then we hold a celebration party, and everyone that has completed the training and can do the haircuts gets a personal certificate from Hair Aid. They then also get a scissor kit with scissors, clips, a comb and a cape all in a closed bag so that they have the tools to begin earning money from hair cutting.
