Anne Russell


Team Australia - Hairdressing

Anne Russell has wanted to be a hairdresser for as long as she can remember.

Inspired by her uncle Scott Sloan – an award-winning Sydney hairstylist - Anne successfully completed a Certificate III in Hairdressing at Riverina Murray TAFE – Wagga in her quest to carve out her own career in the industry.

Participating in hair competitions has long been one of Anne’s goals, which led her to enter a WorldSkills regional competition. There, her performance was earned her an invite to compete at the 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships, where she thrived in the competition environment and took walked away with some new skills, greater confidence and a silver medal.

Now, Anne is working working closely with her expert Donna Demaria in preparation for the 46th WorldSkills International Competition in Shanghai this coming August. Anne’s training schedule involves three training days a week, and she hopes to learn a new technique each week to add to her ‘tool belt of skills’, as she describes it.

Anne’s dream to be the best hairdresser she can be helps fuel her through a gruelling training schedule, and she hopes to able to showcase her finest work and walk away with a medal in Shanghai. After the International Competition, she wants to continue competing in hairdressing competitions and build a name for herself. She also wants to take her newly-acquired knowledge back to her home town of Junee in the Riverina, and work with the TAFE in helping smaller communities gain access to education that can only normally be found in the cities.

When asked what she’s learned so far, Anne says, “I have learnt so much so far on this journey. One if my biggest takeaways from this experience is that if you believe in yourself and put in the hard work, your skills will get better. The more you train and put in the hard yards, you will see progress.”

    WorldSkills Australia

    WorldSkills Australia is a social enterprise that has a purpose to identify, demonstrate, promote, and grow the excellence of Australia’s skills development. A not-for-profit organisation, we are a united voice for skills excellence in vocational, technological, and service oriented careers in Australia. We recognise that the vocational education and training sector is central to Australia’s economic growth, productivity, and future employment outcomes. We have a long and successful history of supporting young Australians to excel in their trade or skill by encouraging them to take part in WorldSkills events and test their skills against their peers at Australia’s most prestigious skills excellence competitions. We are unashamedly about excellence and since 1981, more to 100,000 apprentices and trainees have taken part in WorldSkills Australia activities with many going on to become leaders and key influencers in industry, small business owners and educators. In addition, during the past 40 years, thousands of industry experts and education professionals have enjoyed professional and personal development by volunteering their time and resources to support, train and mentor the apprentices and trainees taking part in WorldSkills competitions regionally, nationally, and internationally. WorldSkills events also provide unequalled opportunities for knowledge exchange between educators, industry, employers, and government departments, with a focus on best practices in skills training and development. As a result, educators and trainers, who participate as a WorldSkills Volunteers typically report improved training delivery and standards and this flows onto the RTO’s and employer groups in a meaningful way. Here is some more information on WorldSkills Australia and our competitors in action at the 2021 National Championships in Perth
