The creative talents of future stylists and make-up artists were showcased on the catwalk, with one model transformed into both Belle and the Beast in a Disney-inspired look.

An audience of 150 family and friends filled the atrium at Suffolk New College in Ipswich for the annual hair and beauty competition.

Employers were also invited to head-hunt for potential recruits to their salons.

Tracey Marshall, programme leader for hair and beauty therapy courses at the college, said: “The standard of work this year was exceptionally high.

“The students practiced for two months to prepare for the event, looking into the history of hair and make-up and exploring new and exciting techniques. It was fantastic to see their hard work pay off.”
