Lush Hair, a new hair extension brand has partnered with Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation by absorbing graduates of hairdressing & cosmetology from its Skills Acquisition Program.
This was made public during the formal presentation of the ladies to the brand at the office in Surulere by the Ministry’s officials, where all agreements and promises were officially established.
The five stylists namely; Ms Ineh Chioma, Ms Adekoya Nike, Ms Surupo Mayowa, Ms. Idowu Elizabeth, Ms Olumegbon Fatimoh were clearly excited about the brands declaration of placing them on a monthly salary despite the flexibility nature of the job offer.
Speaking on this development, the Brand Manager, Lush Hair, Ms Sukhm Pannu said: “We are delighted to collaborate with the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation on this empowerment project and we hope that this will lead to a lasting and sustainable relationship.
As a brand whose core target is women, we will always strive towards assisting the women-folks while also encouraging them to be confident and always stay on top of their game irrespective of their background and societal status.”
According to her, “we are engaging them on a flexible contract, as they will be required to work only 15days and they earn a salary at the end of the month. Considering that they have the rest of the days to themselves, it consequently becomes an alternative stream of income for them.”
Also, having undergone different stages of training under the very close supervision of the Ministry, we believe they would have acquired the right amount of skill required for them to perform excellently on the task ahead. She added
