The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London's Hairdressing students attempted to style their way to winning in an exciting and intense in house competition on Wednesday (25 March) at the College's Salon in the Enfield Centre. The winner of the competition will go on to compete in the prestigious Chris and Sons competition.
Learners were given 4 themes to choose from; animal, human, space/fantasy or plant and were asked to create a style which included hair, make up and costume for their models within one hour. The judging panel consisted of past students and staff and they awarded prizes based not only technical ability but also creativity and flair.
Learner Alex Hardy said, "Today has been stressful and intense but really fun. It's made me realise that I really want to focus on competitions in the future. Looking around the Salon there are so many different looks and ideas. I've learnt so much just from being here today."
One winner from each category was selected with one overall winner who will go on to compete in the Chris and Sons annual hair and beauty competition. The winning entrants were Monika Oleksiejuk for 'Plant', Brittanie Gibbons and Melanie Ressureicao for 'Space', Rungoarun (Kip) Rasameepen for 'Human' and Dlnia Kadir for 'Animal'. The two winners picked to represent the college at the external 'Chris and Sons' competition will be Rungoarun (Kip) Rasameepen and her representation of the them 'Human' and Dlnia Kadir and her representation of the theme 'Animal'. Chris and Sons is one of Britain's leading distributers to the hair and beauty industry and is considered Europe's largest hair and beauty supplier. The winner of this annual competition will have the opportunity to work in their salon in Spain.
Head of School, Ann Atkin said "I'm blown away by the quality of work on display today, it's at an extremely high standard and is testament to the hard work that learners have put in throughout the course. These sorts of competitions are a great experience and really rewarding for our learners but it also prepares them for the real world and pressures of the industry."
