Francesco Hairdressing Awards

Francesco Hairdressing Awards

Tameside College entered The Francesco Group Photographic Awards 2010. The Competition was open to nine colleges throughout England. Thirty photos of student’s hair designs from across the UK were chosen to be entered into the final which was held in Stafford.

Jennifer Blakeley, a Hairdressing student at Tameside College, completed a fashion colour cut and finish on her model Rachel Waters and was the only entry in the North West to reach the final. Photography student, Mark Power, took the photos for all the Tameside College Hairdressing students that competed.

It was the first year that the College entered the competition and Jennifer’s entry demonstrated a skill and flare for hairdressing.  Fellow students made the trip down to Stafford to watch the final judging, where they were also met by the national hairdresser of the year, Michelle Collins.

Jennifer commented, “The experience of being entered into the final of the competition has inspired me to get involved in more industry based competitions. I have also gained confidence to go further in the industry”.
