Young Apprenticeship Hairdressing Competition

06 October 2014

Young Hairdressing apprentices aged between 14 and 16 from Bracknell & Wokingham College took part in a Hairdressing competition this week.

The school pupils, who are all on the Young Apprenticeship programme, put together their designs and mood boards in class in preparation for the competition.

Molly Robinson, 15, from Bracknell, won first prize in the competition. “I can’t believe I won. The inspiration behind my design was a Geisha doll; I chose to do something a bit different because I thought it would stand out from the crowd. I originally chose to do hairdressing because I love cutting hair and designing new hair styles, it feels good when someone goes away happy with their haircut.”

Jane Tippett, a Hairdressing lecturer at Bracknell & Wokingham College said: “The Hair competition is a great opportunity for the students to show off all the skills they have learnt so far by putting it into one big look. The Young Apprenticeship programme is so important because it gives the youngsters a chance to learn about hair and to get an insight into what a career in hairdressing involves.”

Prizes on the day included top of the range hair products, which were kindly donated by L’Oreal, the college’s product partner. The prizes were awarded to the three students who created the best and most creative hair designs. The runner up prize went to Clareece Margery, 15, from Bracknell. The third place prize went to Emily Hatt, 15, from Bracknell.

Young Apprenticeships (YA) give 14-16 year old students the opportunity to pursue industry-specific vocational and vocationally-related learning programmes alongside the National Curriculum.
