Students taking an 18-week course in creative hairdressing exhibited some mind-blowing skills at their end of course showcase.
As part of their course students have to design and create an avant garde hairstyle on a model and showcase it in a catwalk.
This was defined as ‘a group of advanced experts who enjoy being experimental in their field’. The show was held at Aylesbury College where students created their look in front of an audience as their tutor Lydia Bryant assisted. Photography students at the college were guided by tutor Lorraine Hockley to help build up their portfolios.
The final images were then entered into a VTCT (Vocational Training Charitable Trust) competition to celebrate students’ hair and make-up designs.
Course tutor Lydia Bryant said: “The students have really excelled themselves and I am encouraged at how quickly these students’ skills have developed, as they started in January with no hairdressing experience.”
Student Beth Sawyers said: “I’ve learnt a wide range of skills throughout the course and I thoroughly enjoyed the catwalk show.”
They are currently enrolled onto a full-time media make-up course and are encouraged to participate in additional courses such as wig attachments, attaching crepe hair to make moustaches, and creative hairdressing which covers; fantasy and avant garde images, period hair styles from the 1920s to the present day and wedding and prom hairstyles.
Some of these students were chosen to represent Aylesbury college earlier in the year at World Skills where they created looks that celebrated 50years of the college.
This provided useful experience for students who showcased their skills on stage at Birmingham NEC.
