City College Southampton student set to compete in hairdressing competition

City College Southampton student Sarah Jacobs is hoping to be a cut above the rest at a national hairdressing competition.

The Level 3 hairdressing student will compete in the Wella Professional Xposure competition in London on March 8.

Sarah will compete against over 15 other colleges and hair academies around the UK, where she will be required to recreate her look and present it on a catwalk in front of the judging panel.

Julie Burrows, co-ordinator for Level 3 hairdressing, said: “I’m delighted to see Sarah at this stage of the competition.

“She is a very talented student and this is an amazing opportunity for her. I know she will do City College proud.”

Sarah (19) said: “I’m really happy about getting this far in the competition and while I’m a little nervous about presenting my look in front of the judges I know it’ll be a great experience and really help me develop my skills.

“I’m hoping to get into a salon once I leave college in June so this will be brilliant for my CV.”
