Following their success at the regionals, Level 3 Theatrical Make-up students have stormed the AHT (Association of Hairdressers & Therapists) national trainee finals at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool. 

They wowed judges with their skills and creativity as they competed against other institutions in hair and make-up competitions to scoop a clutch of trophies, medals and certificates.

Lecturers Michelle Beddall and Eileen Woodward accompanied the students and, after weeks of helping them fine-tune their hairdressing skills, were very proud to see how much they achieved in this competition.  

The students all worked to an exceptionally high standard and have had their talents recognised in what was a very competitive contest. Some categories had over 40 entrants, so this is a real testament to their skills as hair and make-up artists. Congratulations to all the students and staff involved.
