Hairdressing student earns her stripes

Learners in south east Wales produced out of this world designs inspired by space and films for a spectacular live hair and make-up show.

Hairdressing students at Coleg Gwent let their imagination run wild with styles inspired by the silver screen, while theatrical make-up students took their designs from outer space.

Level three hairdressing student Sophie Gill, 18, won first place with zebra themed hair and make-up inspired by the film Madagascar, with Claire Hulett, 31, coming second with her Willy Wonka look, complete with pic‘n’mix laden hair.

First place in the theatrical make-up category was won by 19–year–old Jody Amner’s intergalactic angel with silver body paint that took seven hours to apply.

Coleg Gwent’s head of school for services to people, Helen Lawless, said: “This was a fantastic creative effort from a whole range of students.

“Everyone can be really proud of what they’ve achieved; it was a great event that enabled students to demonstrate their skill and talent.”
