Hair and Beauty students showcase talents and creativity at annual competition

Talented hair and beauty students put their skills and creativity to the challenge at the annual competition this week (March 13).

Held for the first time at the new Lifestyle Centre, the competition saw eight rounds take place with a variety of themes – including ‘Natural Disaster’, ‘Solar System’ and ‘A Night at the Oscars’.

Lecturers, governors and local employers were on hand to judge the competition, the results of which had been four weeks in the planning. Many students also constructed elaborate scenery and costumes to complement their artistry.

“It’s the first time I have been up to the new building and it looks amazing,” said judge Hayley Jones, from Passion 4 Hair and Beauty.

“It’s really exciting to see the students and their work progressing.”

“As a judge it was quite, quite amazing from every level as to what was done,” added Governor Ro Day.  “I’m proud of Petroc’s lecturers who can teach you to do this!”
