Young hairdressers from Uxbridge College gave modern styling a historic twist in a medieval-themed show at The Beck Theatre in Hayes.

The hairdressing trainees styled the hair of models at the live show called 'Hair Comes Camelot' on 17 March.

Models included pupils from Bishopshalt School in Hillingdon and Tas' Mania Dance & Fitness, who also performed dance numbers. Members of the Medieval Combat Society also joined guests on the night.

Sponsored by Capital Hair and Beauty, a product wholesaler with a branch in Hayes, the event at the 600-seater theatre attracted salon owners, business people, students and their families, and community leaders from all over west London.

Awards, sponsored by Rand Rocket, Conair, G E Betterton and Indola were given to salons to celebrate their achievements in supporting trainees who have been doing work-based qualifications.

The trainees who took part are studying at Uxbridge College's professional-level hair and beauty training salons at the Hayes Community Campus, off Coldharbour Lane, Hayes, which were recently refurbished.

Stylists participating in the show included Apprentices and trainees who qualify for free work-based courses under the Government's Train to Gain scheme, and full-time NVQ students.

Laraine Smith, Principal of Uxbridge College, said: "This event was a celebration not only of the achievements of our students, but of the success of work-based training schemes. Schemes where students learn on the job as well as in college, such as Apprenticeships and Train to Gain programmes, can only succeed with the backing of employers, and this evening was proof of that success."

Roger Withers, Regional Manager for Capital Hair and Beauty, said: "Yet again the show has been a terrific success and Capital is proud to have been involved with it. These students are the stylists of the future and this show was such a success when it was launched last year that there was no question about running another. It is great to see the stylists of the future in action and backing this event is a vital part of the work Capital does to give a little back to its communities."

The College offers low-cost hair and beauty treatments to members of the public.
