Denise Charles, Head of Curriculum for Service Industries, said: “It is important for our students to attend this type of event as it supports their learning journey and prepares them for working in the beauty industry.”

Geraldine Edmonds, Level 3 Beauty Student, said: “Participating in this event gave me the confidence to speak to clients and the opportunity to practice my massage routine at a live event. I really enjoyed it especially when I received great feedback from the attendees.”

Laura McGivney, Beauty Lecturer, said: “The event was very rewarding and taught the students a lot about interacting with clients and the importance of working efficiently to meet timings and provide treatments at industry standard.”
