Hair-raising event for Lincoln College students

Winning team: A group of Lincoln College students managed to secure first place at a national competition for their work last week.

Hairdressing students from Lincoln College achieved multiple successes at the Association of Hair Therapists competitions regionally and nationally.

The group of students secured their place in the national competition by coming second in the Cut and Blow Dry, and third in Body art, Avant Garde and total team presentation in the regional heats.

Last week, the team refreshed their themes ready for the finals in Blackpool and secured first place in the Ladies Cut and Blow Dry (undertaken by 19-year-old Chloe MacDavid), and the total team presentation.

Lincoln College’s Claire MacDavid, who overlooked the entered team, explained: “This involves six students all enrolled on a Hair and Beauty courses at Lincoln.

“They had one hour 15 minutes to transform hair, make up, body art, costumes and then to perform a two min dance to show off the chosen theme. Our theme was Bollywood.

“The team created a stunning look that was admired by everyone.”
