The “Maximalist Touches on Nails Exhibition”, where the works of the students of Cyprus International University (CIU) Hair Care and Beauty Services program were exhibited, was held in the Nature Cafe pine grove area.
Works that were prepared within the scope of the Hair Care and Beauty Service program Decoration Techniques and Applications course took place at the exhibition, where fake nails that were decorated using various techniques were exhibited.
Instructor of the Nail Decoration Techniques and Applications course Fatma Öksüz stated that for the exhibition, instead of minimalist (plain) nail designs that everyone is accustomed to seeing, they worked on designing maximalist style reflections on nails, that are unconventional, using extraordinary techniques and materials.
Giving information in relation to the works, Öksüz advised, “When thinking about the designs, at times plant images, at times the colors of nature, and at times the seasons, were sources of inspiration for us. For example, using a variety of techniques, we created different designs using a dried leaf found in nature”.
Hair Care and Beauty Services Program Manager Dr. Vali Gjinali emphasized that within the events they organize, they constantly work towards new trends, and in this way, they aim to develop their activities and projects.
Adding to his statement that they have taken some works from Europe and the world as an example, Gjinali concluded, "However, due to the fact that we are within a structure where we have the mission to be an example to the people and institutions working within our field, we do not make the same as the examples we have seen, but instead allow them to contribute something to us”.
