Cre­ative stu­dents are a cut above

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

HAIR and Beauty stu­dents at Uxbridge Col­lege pulled out all the stops with their tech­ni­cal and cre­ative skills to cre­ate sen­sa­tional looks for their World of Books cat­walk show.

Colour­ful char­ac­ters from Roald Dahl’s Char­lie and the Choco­late Fac­tory, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prej­u­dice and CS Lewis’ The Chron­i­cles of Nar­nia, and scenes from films in­clud­ing The Ad­dams Fam­ily and The Hunger Games, also in­spired the stu­dents’ work.

The an­nual show was held for the first time in the re­mod­elled the­atre at the Col­lege’s Hayes cam­pus, which was com­pletely up­dated as part of a £9m re­de­vel­op­ment across both the Hayes and Uxbridge cam­puses.

The event in­cluded trainees on Level 2 and Level 3 NVQ cour­ses in hair­dress­ing, beauty ther­apy, and the­atri­cal spe­cial ef­fects hair and make-up.

Stu­dents on per­form­ing arts and cater­ing cour­ses also took part, putting on open­ing mu­si­cal the­atre per­for­mances and pro­vid­ing in­ter­val re­fresh­ments.

The night was spon­sored by Den­nis Wil­liams and Gold­well, with an au­di­ence of the stu­dents’ friends and fam­ily.

Sarah Stead­man, sec­tion man­ager for hair­dress­ing, who or­gan­ised the show, said: “The stu­dents did a bril­liant job, putting all the skills they’d learned at col­lege into prac­tice, and in many cases push­ing them­selves that bit fur­ther as well. They showed an in­cred­i­bly high level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism both in prepa­ra­tions for the event, which lasted a num­ber of weeks, and on the night too.

“The show was a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to gain ex­pe­ri­ence to take into their fu­ture stud­ies or the work­place, and I’m ex­tremely proud of them all.”
