Hair & Beauty Show is a Cosmic Success

Dozens of students from Buxton & Leek College showcased their hair and beauty skills in Buxton’s Devonshire Dome, as part of the College’s annual Hair & Beauty Show on Sunday 10 June.

There were ten winners, pictured with their models, selected from dozens of entrants.

Students from the hair and beauty courses at both Buxton & Leek campuses were given a theme to develop their own make up, hair, nail and beauty looks. Following a period of research the students competed in live conditions at the event in front of industry judges and the public.

“We had a grand finale of winners from aliens to suffragettes. Well done the students, judges, staff and the Mums, dads and friends for supporting. A great afternoon for the college and the Dome and all concerned.
