Feast for the imagination at Enfield Hairdressing End of Year Show
Hairdressing Level 3 winning learners with their models
The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London witnessed a fabulous parade of fantasy characters at its Enfield Hairdressing Level 3 End of Year Show in May (Thursday 22 May). Titled, The Avant-Garde, the highly competitive, buzzy and distinctly glamorous show was judged by industry stylists and entrepreneurs: Lynn Bayford – a freelance stylist specialising in bridal and Avant-Garde photo shoots, Angelo Falzone – a creative director working on photo shoots, cat walk shows and competitions and Jayne Giroud a well-known stylist with over twenty years of experience.
Models and stylists were up from early morning adding hairpieces, make up and costume to ensure they had the total look to conjure up every aspect of their ingenious designs.
From green-skinned Wicked witch Elphaba, to Cinderella demurely wearing her glass slipper in her hair, each stylist proved they had carried out detailed research and produced excellent mood boards to communicate the thinking behind the look they had created. Despite the stress and long hours of the competition the stylists managed to remain looking cool, elegant and in control.
First prize went to Ran Miri Hong for her beautiful creation of a Merman. Ran painted fish scales onto her model’s face and created a hairpiece to accentuate the streamlined look of a sea animal.
Ran said: “I spent many hours in advance preparing the hairpiece and today the look has taken me three hours to complete. I am thrilled with the result.”
Second prize went to Emilia D’Angela for her portrayal of a truly scrumptious character made of liquorice-all-sorts.
Joint Third prizes went to Hamida Syeda for her atmospheric portrayal of a futuristic character drawing on images related to vampires, and to Felicity Evans for her portrayal of the witch Elphaba from the West End hit musical Wicked.
Industry business woman Lynne Bayford said: “It was incredibly difficult to choose just three prize winners – or in this case four - from almost thirty who entered the competition. You are all winners and with talent like yours I am sure you will all go on to great things in your careers.”
Just the day before the Hairdressing Level 3 Show, the pressure was on for the Beauty Therapy Level 2 learners as they competed for the top slot in their End of Year Show. The theme of the competition was ‘Create a Total Image’, and the learners’ inspiration was clearly demonstrated in their mood boards, expertly brought to life by their models. Judges for the Beauty Therapy Level 2 competition were: Magui Morinho – a freelance make-up artist and trainer, as well as, Camellia Shiraishi and Rozana Hykaj, both beauty salon owners.
Beauty Therapy Level 2 winners were in First Place: Pinar Dilmac with her exotic eastern belly dancer. Second Place went to Betul Sonay with her vintage 1940s inspired creation and Third Place went to Fatma Albayrak with her sophisticated evening-occasion make-up.
Magiu Morinho commented on the work produced and praised the expert precision and flawless finish of the three winning learners.
Jane O’Neill Interim Principal and Chief Executive said: “The end of year shows are a very special time in College because they are the high point of the year. We all see just how talented our learners really are – how motivated they are in terms of the research and preparation they carry out and what fabulous work they can produce, which is all the more impressive because they do this under the time pressure of a competition.”
