Hair and beauty students showcased their skills during a competition at The Academy in Roscoe Street, Scarborough.
Categories included ladies’ evening hair style, nail art, 1940s make up, men’s cut and finish and ladies’ blow dry.
All students are enrolled on a hair or beauty course at The Academy and take part in competitions as part of their NVQ qualification. Many students are employed as apprentices in salons in Scarborough, Whitby, Malton and Norton.
Students who came first, second and third will go on to compete at the AHT Regional Heats in Gateshead next month. At the next round Academy students will compete against students from other colleges in the North East with the best of the best going on to the national finals in March.
Lindsay Burr MBE, Academy director, said: “Every year we take students through to the national finals and today was the start of that journey. Well done to every student who took part.
“Many students are apprentices in local salons so have worked very closely with their employers to prepare for the competitions. I would like to thanks local employers for supporting The Academy.
“The standard of work was high this year and we look forward to competing at the regional heats next month.”
