Blue hair day at Alice races

Alice Springs Beauty Therapy Lecturer Deb Street and Retail Cosmetics student Avani Kumar have helped raise awareness and some funds for Dolly’s Dream at the Picnic Day race meeting at Alice Springs Turf Club.

“We provided a blue hair extension service for a donation,” said Ms Street, referencing the favourite colour of Amy “Dolly” Everett, the Territory teenager whose personal tragedy has sparked a campaign to eradicate bullying.

“Our Beauty team members feel strongly about taking a stand against bullying and we felt that ‘going blue’ was an appropriate way to make a positive difference,” Ms Street said.

“It was a successful day and the blue feathers were popular with kids and families.”

Charles Darwin University was one of more than 25 enterprises to participate in the Dolly’s Dream initiative, helping to raise more than $6000 on the day.
