HÀ NỘI — The International Beauty Artists Contest 2018 presented entrants with a chance to learn more about their profession, beauty trends around the world and the experiences of South Korean experts.
Nguyễn Đức An, 22, said as much when he won the top prize at the contest held on Tuesday in Hà Nội.
The prize for runner-up went to Hoàng Thị Dung from Bắc Giang Province.
This is the first time Vietnamese and Korean beauty centres and salons have joined hands to organise the event with aim to create chance to upgrade skills for Vietnamese beauty artists in the field of tinting and sculpting for eyebrows, eyelashes and lips.
The contest attracted 120 beauty artists nationwide to join.
The jury included plastic surgery specialist Kim Yun-ho, Park Jeong-geun, Choi Moon-seop and Vanessa Lee from South Korea, and Khải Đạt and Lương Huyền Trang from Việt Nam.
Trần Thanh Thúy, head of the organising board, said there is a great demand for human resource in the art of facial tinting and sculpting in Việt Nam.
More and more people find facial tinting as the way to help them become beautiful and confident, and not spend much time for make-up.
“It is estimated that the number of 2,000 spas and beauty salons in the whole country and new ones mushrooming require about 10,000 employees for this field,” said Thúy.
“In my opinion, this is the attractive occupation for a young workforce. They certainly should upgrade their professional skills and update new trends.”
On the occasion, Thúy connected many directors of beauty salons and cosmetic surgery centres nationwide to establish an association for beauty artists.
“Organising the contest is a platform to connect people working in the field. In the near future, we want to organise free workshops to train and bring them knowledge and experience to become more professional.” — VNS
