Talented trainee hairdressers studying at City of Wolverhampton College have made it through to the finals of a national hair competition.
Four students, who are studying for their hairdressing diplomas at the college’s Metro One campus, triumphed in the Midlands round of the first Concept Hair magazine Apprentice of the Year competition and will now go through to the national final later this month.
Entrants competed in the styling, hair up, and avante-garde categories of the competition and were required to produce 1920s and Great Gatsby styles, create dazzling prom hair, or produce a spectacular fire and ice-themed style.
Their work was judged by leading industry professionals, with students Jessica Dodd, aged 16, and Kristina Jasinkaite, 35, coming first in the Level 1 and Level 2 1920s categories, respectively, and Kundai Pearl-Rose Musoko winning first place in the Level 2 prom hair class.
First place in the avante-garde category went to Level 2 student Gita Mockune for her stunning multi-coloured, height-defying fire and ice creation.
The team will now compete in the final of the competition at the L’Oréal Professionnel Academy in London on Thursday, March 26.
