Bright and bold hairstyles steal the students’ show

ICE-CREAM shaped hair and Coke can curlers were among the wacky designs used by Weston College students.

The brightest and boldest barnet fashions were displayed at the Total Look 2011 hairdressing show.

The annual event featured the creations of 30 level three hairdressing students who, as part of their course, were asked to design two looks each – a contemporary avant-garde style and a high fashion hairdo from the past.

In front of a panel of four expert judges from regional salons, models paraded the creativity and skill of the young hairdressers hoping for top marks.

The students were also required to prepare their models for a pre-show photo session involving students from the college’s photography courses.

The level three hairdressing course leader, Sandra Bull, said: “The students put a huge amount of effort into what they did, and it’s important for them to see there are various career paths they can take in hairdressing, for example in the theatre or on photo shoots.

“Many of the students have had work experience in local salons so it was great to see how they put the skills they’ve learned into their designs.”

One of the more unusual creations in the show featured an 18th century inspired coiffure that was a birdcage – complete with a stuffed bird on top.

Other designs included 1960s bob cuts and even one inspired by an ice-cream cone.

The overall winner was Emily Maynard, from Weston, who used flair and imagination to create a cone of hair that emerged from the back of her model’s head.
