Dustin Schumann named Canadian Hairdresser's 'Newcomer of the Year'.

Fanshawe College proudly announces that Dustin Schumann, a 2014 graduate from the Hair Stylist program at the Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus, has won 'Newcomer of the Year' from the Canadian Hairdresser Mirror Awards.


Schumann says his professors' encouragement in continued learning and self-improvement led him to enter the 2015 Canadian Hairdresser Mirror Competition, which showcases the creative talent within the Canadian beauty industry. That entry resulted in a national nomination in March as one of Canada's top five finalists.
