The annual York College Hair & Beauty competition held at York Racecourse on 27th January 2015 involved 250 full and part-time Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy students. The event attracted local employers, with some acting as judges.


The competition included the following categories: 1st Year Blow Dry, 1940s Make-up, Ladies Avant Garde, Level 3 Skills Challenge, Team Bridal, Evening Style, Body Painting and a Total Team event based on the theme of ‘A Night at the Theatre’.


Jayne Laverick, Head of Division for Hair, Beauty and Holistic Therapies at York College commented: “The College’s annual hair and beauty competition is a fantastic showcase for our students to demonstrate the skills they learn in the College’s training salons and in local salons, where many of them work as apprentices. Working under competition conditions, I am always astounded by the high standards and creativity achieved by our students.”
