Hair and Make-up students compete with vintage looks
Eastleigh College Hairdressing and Hair & Media Make-up students have been busy preparing for their recent end of year competition, which involved students creating inspiring styles to form a complete look. The event was themed 'Mid-Century', comprising of looks from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Models showcased the looks in a catwalk style presentation in front of judges Lisa Hicks, C.R.A.F.T Educator at Matrix, and Lou Gittens, Head of Science at Eastleigh College. Students were judged on their ability to put together a look, meeting the brief given to them, fulfilling the course units and matching other specified criteria.
One of the winners was Brooke Barnett, a Level 3 Hair & Media Make-up student, who based her look on a neon theme. Talking about the experience, Brooke commented: "The Show has helped me learn how to plan and how to solve problems quickly. It's also great for building on your communication skills, which is important working in this industry".
Taking part in the show helps students practise their techniques and advance their skills, as well as learn about the opportunities available to them. Zoe Bonniot, Lecturer in Hairdressing at Eastleigh College and organiser of the event, said "The Show is important in demonstrating to the students that it's not just about working in a Salon - there are other routes you can go down, such as theatre or television, where you can be as artistic and creative as you like".
Judge Lisa Hicks added "I've thoroughly enjoyed judging this event - I've seen some amazing talent and imagination today, and I'm impressed with the way the students have executed the Show. It's about understanding where this industry can take you, if you put in the hard work".
