Hairdressing student is streaks ahead

An award-winning young London stylist has been given the chance to show she’s a cut above the rest by passing on her skills to younger students.

Croydon College hairdressing and beauty therapy student Hannah-Corrine Patterson, 19 and from Brockley, was chosen to run workshops for Year 11 youngsters at Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls, in Surrey, after winning a college award for commitment to learning.

The five-week program of hairdressing-related learning activities was designed to engage younger students with vocational training, as well as allowing Hannah-Corinne to gain teaching skills.

She said: “When I first started I was very nervous, but over the weeks I built up my confidence and I now don’t want it to end.

“The pupils have really come a long way and I am very pleased to have had this opportunity.”
