Academy celebrates beauticians



MASERU – Progress Hair and Beauty Academy celebrated the success of their beauticians at a graduation ceremony last Saturday. Nine of their graduates received certificates on hairdo, pedicure and manicure in an event held at Moshoeshoe II in Maseru.

This is an annual ceremony that is normally held in December following three-months training courses but due to Covid-19 restrictions the event was postponed. Steven Mokhele Monathi, the director Progress Hair and Beauty Academy noted during the graduation that one of the best things about beauty business is that it does not expire.

He highlighted that even though a lot of people discourage salon workers by labelling them non-professional, after studying beauticians can explore all kinds of beauty and have a market for it. “Beauty has many aspects to it, therefore, we are very confident that our students can venture into all other beauty businesses,” said.

On behalf of the graduates, Mookho Matšoaboli, said she was very proud of herself for achieving one of her goals. In 2018 Mookho graduated with a certificate in hairdo and on Saturday she graduated with a certificate in manicure and pedicure, something she said she has been longing to do for some time.

“One of the things I have learned here is discipline, tolerance and to do my work with love, and that the rest will follow.” Progress Hair and Beauty Academy, is an operational beauty salon where people get their hair and nails done at the same time.

They started operating in 2011 and have had hundreds of graduates already, a lot of whom have opened their own beauty salons to date. Outstanding students have a chance to be hired by the academy. The academy is the process to including a diploma course in their curriculum to enable their students to progress in their knowledge.
