On Thursday 21st May a selected group of students from our Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy courses took part in the end of year Hair and Beauty Show at our Wellingborough campus.

Following a Carnival theme, students have spent recent months researching and planning designs and concepts for the competition and a number of inter nal heats have been held to select the most imaginative and creative styles from each group studying across our three campuses.

Students created mood boards for the theme which could be taken in any direction they preferred and resulted in designs based around Notting Hill Carnival, animals, around the world and the Mexican Festival Day of the Dead.

Over recent months internal heats for each level have been held to select the best creations from each group with the top two taking part in the final competition. The qualifying heats varied from completing a blow dry and a cut and finish on the day to a creative hair design to include clothes, make up and accessories were completed by the hairdressing students. Beauty Therapy students completed designs on models using face paints ready to create a fantasy design for the show.

The evening’s winners were:

  • Hairdressing Level 1 Mood Board Winner – Rebecca Smith
  • Hairdressing Level 3 Mood Board Winner – Kay White
  • Level 1 Hairdressing – Alicja Kwiatkowska
  • Level 2 Hairdressing – Katie Smith
  • Corby Level 3 Hair – Catya Lopes
  • Kettering Level 3 Hair – Louis Dickens
  • Beauty Therapy L1 Winner – Whitney Smith
  • Beauty Therapy L2 Winner – Kiera Swann McKay
  • Beauty Therapy L3 – Katrina Berril

The judges for the evening were representatives from Professional Choice, Affinage, Hair Extension Academy and VTCT (an awarding body for Beauty qualifications) and all proceeds for the evening went to local charity She Matters.

She Matters is a local Corby based charity which offers a drop-in service for women in the town. Around 1,800 women use the group’s service every year for social activities as well as crisis support in relation to domestic abuse situations, sexual abuse, benefit and housing problems. The money raised by the Hair and Beauty show will allow the charity to help more women and provide a further effective service.
