Over 30 hairdressing apprentices have been put through their paces at the annual Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training Hairdressing Festival.
The event was a valuable learning experience for the trainee stylists and allowed them to build confidence whilst working under pressure and dealing with the scrutiny of the judges, a panel of expert hairdressers. The creative flair and level of complex skills showcased by the apprentices was incredible. Some truly wonderful styles were created by both experienced apprentices and trainees just starting out on their learning journey.
The hairdressing festival has grown in popularity and this year was held in front of a large crowd at the Standard Triumph Club where the apprentices were invited to showcase their skills whilst working in front of an audience. This is essential experience for any young hairdressing professional aiming to work in a busy salon environment.
Many local salon owners, family, friends and hairdressing professionals attended the event taking the opportunity to discover some of the latest hairdressing techniques which were on show. The event also provided an opportunity for salon owners to raise the profile of their businesses by supporting the development of local talent through events such as these.
The audience was treated to a real hairdressing extravaganza including some superb Avant-Garde work, beautiful evening style prom styles and some highly advanced techniques in the complex skills challenge.
Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber Training were delighted to donate all the proceeds from the event, a total of over £260, to the Little Princess Trust - a charity that provides real hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Jayne Powell, Hairdressing Tutor at Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber Training said, "We would like to say a huge thank you to Affinage and Sally Salon Services for donating the prizes for the winning stylists and thanks to everyone, including the team of staff and volunteers, which made the evening possible. We saw some super work from our stylists and we hope you all had a fabulous night."
