As part of our Hair and Beauty Industry Week this year, students received training sessions from some impressive names in the UK Hair and Beauty Industry.

First to visit and share their expertise was Sheree Thompson from Siren Hair Art, who delivered a bridal hair training session to our students.

Tuesday was a takeover by professional makeup artist Carrie Jones. Carrie held a fantastic session and carried out a full makeup demonstration on our very own Julia Davies from our Enterprise team.

Carrie has worked with celebrities including Gok Wan, Olly Murs and P!nk, and shared lots of anecdotes and advice from her career during the session.

Finally, Olivia Pearce from Luxe Aesthetics delivered an interactive session on Thursday demonstrating potential careers which await students in beauty aesthetics.

Anita Wilkinson, Head of Department for Hair and Beauty, said: “We’ve had another brilliant Hair and Beauty Industry Week packed full of new learning opportunities for our students.

“Sessions with experts like this are not only making valuable additions to our students’ skill sets, but also showing them what they could achieve and aspire to be in their careers if they continue to work hard.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to each of our guests for their brilliant sessions.”
