    Graduated with Diploma of Beauty Therapy

    Since graduating from Helene Abicair College, Sam’s career in beauty therapy has reached amazing heights working as a massage and spa therapist at Daydream Island, where she won the Therapist of the Year award for the Whitsunday’s in 2008.

    Upon returning from island life, Sam managed a 5 star Spa Retreat in Melbourne before opening her own hair and beauty salon. Sam also managed to squeeze in a lot of backstage makeup for independent films in Melbourne and Queensland in her time. Sam attributes her diverse and successful career as a beauty therapist to the quality training she received at Helene Abicair College. She has since returned to the college as an instructor, where she has been teaching the Diploma of Beauty Therapy qualification for the past 2 years where she hopes to inspire the next generation of beauty therapists to come!

    Graduated with Diploma of Beauty Therapy

    Although Alayna’s passion has always been for Makeup, she is currently working as a qualified Beauty Therapist, combining the skills of both to create a diverse and well rounded career. Alayna is now working on a horror movie set for “The Ghost of Victoria Park”, which is currently in production, and has already been signed up to work on another Australian horror movie in Western Australia which will be filmed next April.


    Alayna was taught by the Helene Abicair team in makeup artistry, and has since developed her skills to a professional level! Even as an aspiring student Alayna showed huge potential and flare in this field, as you’ll see below, this was a photo shoot she created for an assessment piece as part of her makeup unit, while studying at Helene Abicair College. We are very proud of Alayna’s success and wish her all the very best. We’re sure we’ll see and hear a lot more about her future ventures!
