PUPILS at a local college ended their academic year by travelling back in time to the 1950s and 60s.

Skinny jeans and trainers were nowhere to be seen, and instead replaced by platform boots, bold print dresses and Grease inspired clothing as part of a work showing by hairdressing students at George Pindar Community Sports College.

The Year 10 teenagers had been busy researching the factors and eras that have influenced the hairstyles of today, and suitably dressed the part to mark the end of term.

Teacher Geraldine Raisin said: “The new year 10s have been looking at the history of hairdressing from the Egyptians to the Elizabethans, up to modern day.

“We narrowed the era to the 50s and 60s as we felt this was an important time for fashion and change.

“The students collected clothes and accessories to complete their look as well as creating the make-up and hairstyles whilst learning new skills.”
