CUTTING EDGE TIPS FROM INDUSTRY EXPERTS

Hair and beauty students at City of Wolverhampton College will be picking up tips from the top when a host of industry experts drop in to classes next week (11-15 January).

Representatives from a range of hair and beauty companies will be visiting the college’s city centre Metro One campus to demonstrate the latest techniques and products, as well as giving students advice on the skills they need for successful careers in the industry.

Hairdressing students will get the chance to watch the experts carrying out blow drying, perms and ombre colouring, whilst those studying for beauty qualifications will see the professionals doing nail art, spray tanning and cellulite wraps.

Lynn Parker, head of faculty for hair and beauty at the college said: “As well as teaching our students the practical skills they need to gain their qualifications we are also very much focused on ensuring that they extend their knowledge by learning from professionals who have been in the business for many years and therefore know what skills employers are looking for.”

Companies providing demonstrations throughout the week include Francesco Group, Elemis, Macadamia, Avlon and United Beauty.

City of Wolverhampton College provides over 20 full and part-time hair and beauty courses from beginner to HNC diploma level – for details visit www.wolvcoll.ac.uk/subject/hair-beauty/ or call 01902 836000.
