The participants of Hairdressing section will examine Buns and Bridal Head subtitles. Marriage ceremonies are important in every culture and geography but in Diyarbakir, these ceremonies have a special importance. Considering that the hairdressing services are more requested when wedding or special days are the subject. And it is a fact that, most of the women in Diyarbakir, prefer female hairdressers because of their conservative attitude. We have concluded that increasing the knowledge and skills of our students in this direction, will serve our purposes better. Our participants will receive hands-on training for 2 weeks in the Czech Republic and by this project they will move towards being able to respond to the needs of their city.
