HoMie holds a VIP event for young women at Ladder

Young women from Ladder Hoddle Street, Glen Waverley and Broadmeadows had a fabulous day at a special VIP event at HoMie. They were spoilt with free goodies all day including a haircut and style, their choice of clothes, having their nails done, and getting two bags full of woman-specific services and products.

To top it all off Aasta O’Connor from the Western Bulldogs' women's team came and had a sensational conversation about lessons and gifts from events in life.

Aside from comments like "I felt treated like an equal, not charity" and "I feel so good about myself now" the event has also led to the potential for hairdressing pre-apprenticeships for our young people.

Huge credit to the incredible Nick, Markus, Ellen, Darcy, Hayley, Tegan, Erin and the many volunteers from HoMie, Donna from the Period Project, Bec from Ironique Hair Studio, Josh from The Bearded Man, Kate from Pinchapoo, and the STREAT team for amazing coffee.
