Hair and Beauty Showcase 2019

The annual West London College Hair & Beauty Showcase took place last week, giving students the opportunity to show off their talents and use skills learnt throughout the academic year to provide an entertaining show for a lively and packed out room. Having spent the morning meticulously styling their models to match the themes set by the department for each year group, the showcase followed in the afternoon, where staff, students, friends and family got to see the incredible creations walk down the catwalk.
