Hairdressers are three cuts above the rest

Hairdressers are three cuts above the rest

Three students from the same college won top 10 places at one of the hairdressing industry’s toughest national competitions.

Rachel Hugginson, 17, from Dursley, who studies VRQ level three in hairdressing at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, came third in the junior cut and colour category, while Katie Channon, 22, came fourth in the junior blow dry category.

Katie, from King Stanley, said: “I really enjoy competitions and it is definitely something I will continue to do in the future. The buzz you get is worth the nerves . . . as soon as I finished one event I couldn’t wait to do the next. It is a brilliant experience and a great thing to be involved with.”

Their classmate Carrie Le Pavoux, 21 from Eastington, finished in the top 10 of the Uptown Girl competition.

Tutor Rachel Garside said: “All three students did exceptionally well against the tough competition.”
