For the month of February, if you have an interest in hairdressing and are between the ages of 11 and 17, you have the chance to participate in a program provided by the Deadly Hair Dude in collaboration with Julalikari, who managed to win a grant from the Department of Health to bring the program to Tennant Creek as a part of the Alcohol and Other Drugs initiative.

Hairdresser Matt Hastings and Indigenous Achievement Award winner, Kyle Banbra will be working with young people over the next month, and local Elders will also talk to the participants about the dangers of alcohol and drug use in an effort to divert them from these things, as well as information and support from other local services.

Photos of the participants work will be put up in the Art and Culture Centre in late March to show off their hard work.

If you happen to know of a young person who would be interested, or you are in need of a hair cut just email
