Hairdressing and beauty therapy students took part in a special industry week at West Nottinghamshire College this month.
The event immersed students in a range of masterclasses, workshops and practical sessions.
Trainee hairdressers took part in a long-hair masterclass and were able to glean new cutting and colouring techniques during their competitions.
They also took part in a cut and restyle time challenge, supported by Francesco Group.
Beauty students were able to practice a new style of massaging using a bamboo cane, which replaces the therapist’s hands, and is used to give a deep, firm massage.
And a prosthetics workshop was organised for students to learn the art of applying make-up and materials to recreate wounds and bruises.
Some very realistic looks were produced which are often used in film and television when staging injuries on actors’ bodies.
