The annual seminar, which focusses on Hair and Beauty, is run to share new product and treatment innovations from over 600 beauty brands. It provided the perfect platform to inform our students of the exciting opportunities that await them upon completion of their courses.

With hair shows, barbering tutorials, beauty and holistic therapy demonstrations around the arena, there was plenty to see. There were also plenty of new products to try and buy at discounted student prices (a particular highlight for the students!)

Hair and Beauty Teacher Miss Claire Turnbull commented: "The trip was a great success and we all enjoyed watching some of the top names within the industry at work. The day was inspirational for the students and showed the breadth and diversity of the exciting world of Hair and Beauty."

There were some stunning examples of creativity to be seen around the arena...

The students wasted no time in picking up some beauty bargains to assist with their courses.
