Hair students at Dudley College put their creative skills to the test this week by having to produce a complete look with a model of their choice by using either 'Rock n Roll' or 'Halloween' as the theme.

The students who are all studying the NVQ level 3 in hairdressing had to plan and design: a hairstyle, make-up, costume to create the final image and arrange a photo shoot.

These final creations then enable them to achieve units towards their level 3 qualification, along with hairdressing theory and practice, fashion cutting, colouring and perming, long hair techniques and health and safety.

"Our students have set themselves high standards to work to which shows in their final images.  They have all produced some really imaginative looks.  I am extremely proud of them all they have put a lot of thought and time into their work." said tutor Emma Summers.
