Beauty Care & Wellness Livelihood Seminar

Posted by | Sep 08, 2021 |

Over the last few years, nail and hair services have grown in popularity. “Manicures may not be a necessity, but they are services that truly transform a client and gives them a feeling of beauty and happiness,” says John Hallberg in his blog. Due to COVID-19, these services have become rare or inaccessible especially to those who live far from the city.

As a support, in line with the Presidential Theme for the year 2021-2022, Women helping Women, the IWC of San Fernando, La Union D379 decided to conduct a Beauty and Healthcare Wellness Livelihood Seminar for the women of Barangay Sagayad, San Fernando City, La Union headed by President Julie Lim.

With the team’s effort, they were able to invite 32 participants to join the seminar. Three speakers namely, Josephine Servania and Mayrle Dela Cruz and Teddy Licudan joined them to guide and share their expertise.

Mrs Josephine and Mrs Mayrle, teachers of Sto. Rosario National High School, discussed and demonstrated the basics of manicure and pedicure. IWCSFLU members distributed manicure sets to the participants and guided them along with the discussion.

On the other hand, Mr. Teddy Licudan, a teacher of Bacnotan National High School, discussed about haircutting. Mr. Teddy and President Julie Lim, demonstrated on how to do a straight cut, layered and a C-cut.

The participants are then encouraged to try to cut each other’s hair.

The seminar allowed the IWCSFLU to promote cleanliness among the women but also gave them a source of livelihood. With the surge of the pandemic, these services will soon be available at our doorsteps.
