The West London College Hair & Beauty Showcase is an annual event that gives our Hair & Beauty students the opportunity to show off their talents and use skills and lessons learnt throughout the academic year. This year did not disappoint and the levels of skill involved impressed the judges.
Our Hair & Beauty students spent the morning meticulously styling their models to match the themes set by the department for each year group. This was followed by the Showcase in the afternoon, where staff, students, friends and family got to see the incredible creations walk down the catwalk. The show was hosted by Roslyn O’Garra while Dean Vaughan and Mandy Bahra formed the judging panel.
Prizes were donated by this year’s sponsors: Chris & Sons, Motives Cosmetics and Dennis Williams Hair & Beauty Supplies.
Denise Charles, Head of Curriculum (Service Industries) said:
“It’s fantastic to see the hard work of our students showcased and recognised by friends, family, staff and students at such an amazing event. The level of talent this year was outstanding and we had a great turn out. A big thank you to the Hair & Beauty staff for their support and hard work this year, to our sponsors for providing the prizes and a huge congratulations to the students who took part!”
Dean Vaughan, Director of Curriculum and Judge at the Showcase said:
“The West London College Hair and Beauty showcase proved to be an uplifting and magical event where students and staff celebrated the culmination of a whole year's hard work. The competition entries were near impossible to judge in terms of quality and application and all entrants could have been worthy winners!”
