Hairdressing students make the Wella Regional heats

Two West Herts College students have successfully made the regional heats for the Wella XPosure 2019 competition. 

The students, Kelsey Ausden Oliver and Demi Eames, made the regional heats after they were briefed that they had to create a commercial colour and cut for the photographic stage of the competition.

During their planning and discussions they knew they had to create a strong image to get noticed, after careful consideration with tutors and peers the girls decided on the looks they wanted to achieve and started the process of doing so. They both created mood boards to start forming a basis for the image they wanted to create then, using hair swatches as samples for the colours they wanted to create, practiced application on their training blocks.

The girls had to do some scouting to find suitable models whose complexion and hair type would match the look they wanted to achieve, they also had to consider the final look by including clothes and makeup to match the overall style.

The regional heats will be held on Friday 3 May 2019 at Barnet and Southgate College. On the day our two hopefuls will need to recreate the colour and cut ahead of judging before having an hour to style their model in which they will be watched carefully and assessed to see if they have produced the winning look.

There are exciting prizes in sight for the girls if they should be successful in the competition. Gold, Silver and Bronze UK winners will experience an XPOSURE tailor-made mentoring day with an inspirational industry icon at the Wella World Studio London. This fantastic prize will be an action-packed day to inspire and get them exposed to new ideas and ways of thinking!
