Aspiring Hairdressers Showcase Their Skills At Bolton College

Talented hairdressing and barbering students from Bolton College proved they were a cut above the rest, as they showcased their skills during a special event last week.

More than 60 budding stylists came together to give their fellow classmates a new look, as part of the college’s annual Hairdressing Skills Showcase.

The event, which was held on Monday, was a chance for level two and three hairdressing and barbering students to pick up tips and inspiration from top industry experts.

And, for the first time, this year’s showcase also gave student barbers a platform to show off their skills.

Hairdressing curriculum leader, Sarah Bleackley, said: “We love holding this event every year as it gives our students something to work toward, and gives them the opportunity to show off the skills they have gained throughout their time here.

“Our Performing Arts students acted as models and we were thrilled to be joined by our barbers for the first time – they were our first set of students on the course, so it was fantastic to see the progress being made.

“We hope our budding hairdressers have taken inspiration from each other’s work and have had their confidence boosted by putting their skills into practice.”

Courses at Bolton College’s Hairdressing Academy include learning how to cut hair, colour, perm and scalp massage.

Marie Gilluley, Principal of Bolton College, said: “This was a fantastic extravaganza which showcased our students’ hairdressing talents at their very best.

“The event not only highlighted the students’ dedication and enthusiasm, but also the staff’s genuine passion for the courses we offer.

“Our ultimate goal is to see our learners secure employment and we’re confident that this course provides them with the tools and know-how to do just that.”
