Kidderminster College hair and beauty students have scooped two top awards at the National Hairdressing Federation awards. Elisha Broome, 16, a full-time Level 1 learner, won first place in the blow drying competition. She also became the youngest ever hairdressing student to be chosen to work as part of the National Hairdressing Federation’s artistic team.
Another student, Jessica Langridge, 18, who is on a Level 2 apprenticeship, won the student of the year award. She studied at the College for one day a week and also worked at Salon 2000 in Stourbridge. She won after being nominated for the award by the salon and its clients.
Kate Williams, Programme Leader said, “I am delighted with both of the awards which show how our students can compete with the best in the country even when they are as young as Elisha and being part of the NHF’s artistic team will enable her to hone her skills and head for a top job.
“Jessica also did brilliantly against a lot of tough competition and it was great that the salon where she did her apprenticeship as well as her clients nominated her for this accolade. She has also been rewarded by gaining a full-time job at the salon where she did her apprenticeship.
“Both of the students are proof that if people want to train for a career in hairdressing, Kidderminster College is the place to go,” she added.
Kidderminster College was also nominated for the College of the Year award, an accolade they have won previously.
The awards were presented at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.
