Students cut and style their way to the finals of Concept Hair Learner of the Year!

We are delighted to announce that five of our hairdressing students are UK finalists in Concept Hair Learner of the Year 2021

With eight categories to enter, we’re extremely proud that our students are representing the College in three of these. We have three Level 3 students in the Avant Guard category, Salimata Knight, Sylivia Nansubuga and Natasha Ivory. Fatoumatta Kinteh, a Level 2 Hairdressing student, is competing in the Styling category and Kyron Dellow, a Level 3 Barbering student, is a finalist in the Barbering category.
