Jayne Laverick, Head of Division for Hair, Beauty and Holistic Therapies at York College said: “The competition gives students an opportunity to showcase their skills and demonstrate what they have learnt in the College’s training salons and in local hair and beauty salons, where many of them work as apprentices. Judged by local employers, students must work under strict competition conditions to showcase their creativity, producing work of a very high standard. I congratulate all the competitors on their achievements.”
