BEEHIVES, bouffants and brush-backs were all the rage when this group of hairdressers started work in the 1960s.

They all trained together at Suffolk College from 1962-1965 and met up last night, > 40 years later, for a reunion.

The hairdressers reminisced about the past and talked about how their lives had changed over dinner at the Suffolk College restaurant.

The event was organised by Judy Studd (nee Barker) and Penny Potter (nee Abbott).

Mrs Studd said: "Penny and I have always kept in contact and we thought it would be nice to see everybody again. Most people are from around here but one has travelled from Southampton for the night."

Mrs Potter added: "It's great to see everybody again and really amazing to find out the strange things that people remember from all those years ago."
