The creative talents of Suffolk New College’s future stylists and make-up artists were showcased during the annual hair and beauty competition.

An audience of around 250 friends, family members and prospective students filled the Ipswich-based college’s atrium as hairdressing and beauty therapy learners hit the catwalk.

Employers were also invited and talent spot for potential recruits to their salons.

Tracey Marshall, programme leader of the hairdressing and beauty therapy courses, said: “The standard of work this year was exceptionally high and the staff and students were really proud of the work that was showcased.

“The students practised for two months to prepare for this event, looking into to the history of hair and make-up and exploring new and exciting techniques.
