ANGUS College hairdressing students will be heading to Aberdeen Beach Ballroom on Monday (November 19) to compete in the Aberdeen College North East Hair and Beauty Festival.

This annual event, which is now in its ninth year and organised by Aberdeen College, will see the crème de la crème of hairdressing and beauty therapy students participate in competitions which range from fantasy make-up and ladies’ commercial cut and blow dry through to manicure, cover girl make-up and the ever popular ladies’ high fashion and ladies’ evening style.

Students from Scottish colleges and qualified stylists from hair salons are invited to participate, and with over 400 competitors, there is plenty to see.

It’s a nail-biting day for competitors but a fascinating day for spectators who can sit back and watch as models are transformed before their very eyes.

Angus College hairdressing lecturer Debbie Donaldson said: “Although we have had a great deal of success in previous years, we didn’t do so well last year, but the students have been working extremely hard to prepare so fingers crossed we’ll bringing home some titles this time around.”
