Love was in the hair as students created a beautiful collection of bridal styles on a wedding theme.
Aspiring hairdressers from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) took part in an end of year fashion show on 8 June.
They used various techniques to create their styles, chose dresses and applied make-up to complete their looks, which will form part of their course assessment.
Monica Nicolaou, 20, who is studying an Advanced Technical Diploma in Hairdressing Level 3, created a hairstyle based on the idea of a music festival wedding.
She said: "I chose to study at CONEL because of its amazing reputation. My mum studied GCSEs in English and maths here recently, so I knew it was a good choice.
“I have been amazed with what I have learned in the past two years, we have had demos, theory and practical sessions, and the tutors have been really supportive."
Salma Bangura, 27, who is studying the same course, was a full-time mum before returning to education to pursue her passion for hairdressing.
She described her style as blending African goddess with London chic.
"Coming to college has been the best thing I've done, the theory is great. I've improved my skills and learned so much,” she said.
“I'm very, very happy. If anyone is thinking about coming to CONEL, I’d say definitely do it – it can make your dream a reality."
The trainee stylists and their models later took part in a runway show to show off their creations at the Style Zone salon at CONEL’s Tottenham Centre.
Joan Bardouille, Course Team Leader for Hairdressing, said: “Part of the remit was that the styles had to be avant-garde and good enough to feature on a magazine cover, and I think students really achieved that and exceeded our expectations.
“Their styles looked beautiful and very professional, and really showcased their skills and talent.”
