Telford College’s hairdressing students brought creativity and glamour to the campus when they showcased their skills in an annual competition.


Level two and three students created striking looks in four different categories – this year’s themes were festival, red carpet, carnival, and avant-garde.

Hairdressing lecturer Kerrie Treharne said: “We were delighted to welcome students and models back on site for the competition after two years of virtual presentations due to Covid restrictions.

“However we had to run the competition a little bit differently this year, splitting the categories over a number of days to keep the number of visitors and models on site at any one time to a minimum.

“All categories were judged by external judges from the industry, and trophies, certificates, and prizes were given out.”

She added: “It’s always one of the highlights of the year for the students, gathering their own model, outfit, accessories and creating a mood board to showcase their look on the day.”

Level two students were divided into two groups – one with a ‘festival’ theme, and the other with ‘red carpet’ image.

And in the Avant-garde category for level three students, the winner was stylist Alicia Steel and model Jenny Parker, with Leah Nuttal as runner-up.
