Hair on the up!


Two women who are retraining in new careers in hairdressing via Tresham College, have been shortlisted in a national competition.

The Concept Hair Magazine hosts a range of competition classes and Karen Smith and Kirsty Rutherford have both made it through to the finals of the Hair Up/Red Carpet category.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions they had to submit entries online and now go on the next stage on March 12th. If they get through that stage, it is the national finals in April.

Sue Wood, lecturer in hairdressing at the Corby campus said: “This is a tremendous achievement for these two students. The both completed their full-time Level 2 qualifications last year and enrolled on the fulltime Level 3 course at Kettering which started in August 2020.

“In these trying time it has become more obvious that ever before, that people always need their hair done and there is no substitute for professionaly trained stylists.

“There are many opportunities for those seeking creative careers in hairdressing and these are open to school leavers and those wanting a change of direction in employment.

“You are never too old to train for a new career.”
