The South Eastern Regional College recently staged its annual inter-campus hairdressing competition.

The event was hosted at the college’s Lisburn campus, in partnership with local salons.

The contest was aimed at testing and challenging the ability and skills of SERC students from across the college.

Students were required to come up with a whole look for a model, includinghair, make-up, clothing and footwear.

A spokesperson said: “Traditional hairdressing competitions are judged solely on hairstyle but this competition was designed to challenge the students to think beyond a hairstyle and consider a person’s whole appearance, picking clothes, shoes and make-up to match their hairstyle theme.”

The competition was judged by David Donnelly from Salon Services, James Wallace from the James Wallace Salon in Downpatrick and award-winning Joseph Scott, who owns a salon in Belfast.

The luxury prizes were sponsored by Denman and Wella.
