Hair_show_1200_IMG_4638Hairdressing and beauty therapy trainees marshalled their skills and creativity for a dynamic and colourful show - this group chose the Alice in Wonderland theme.The Smurfs, the Simpsons, 101 Dalmations and Alice in Wonderland were among the colourful characters at Uxbridge College’s Animation Nation show.

The production was held by hairdressing and beauty therapy students to showcase their creative and professional skills.

The trainees on NVQ courses did each other’s make-up and hair for the event, and then appeared on the catwalk.

Preparation took place in the Distinction Hair & Beauty Salons at the College’s Hayes Community Campus, off Coldharbour Lane, Hayes. The show was held in the campus theatre, which is also used for performing arts teaching and community events.

The buffet and drinks during the interval were prepared and served to guests by catering and hospitality students in the training restaurant Revisco.

Derry Moody, Head of Hair, Beauty and Hospitality, said: “This dynamic, high-energy show is now an annual fixture and gives students a chance to do something a bit unusual.

“Their day-to-day learning on hair and beauty courses covers a lot of serious work, and this event gives them a break from studying anatomy and physiology, science, customer care, and perfecting a wide range of techniques for treatments and styles.

“However, that is not to underestimate the skill and energy that goes into creating a show like this – it can be surprisingly complex to turn someone into a Dalmation or make their hair stand on end!”

Both Distinction and Revisco are open to the public during term time, for hair and beauty treatments and lunches. These are provided by fully-supervised trainees at competitive rates.
