UCOL Hairdressers Set For a Blow Down

UCOL Hairdressers Set For a Blow Down

It will be blow-dryers at noon when UCOL Hairdressing students vie for honours in the annual History of Hair competition to be held on Thursday.

Eight students from the UCOL Wairarapa and ten from Whanganui UCOL will join eleven Palmerston North students to compete for prizes for Best Style on the Day and the Best Overall History project.

As part of their programme, the Certificate in Hairdressing students are required to research a culture or era of their choice and depict it in a hair style.

The students will present a diverse range of styles and eras, from the 17th and 18th century and from Africa to Japan.

They have one hour to recreate the style they have practiced dozens of times on their mannequins.

UCOL Hairdressing Lecturer Gillian Gosper says although the competition is the culmination of months of research and practice by the students, they are new to performing in front of people. “The nerves can really kick in,” she says. “Some students respond really well to the pressure. We always get a couple of styles that really surprise.” 

Held during the busy lunchtime in UCOL’s Atrium at the Palmerston North campus, the competition always attracts plenty of interest from onlookers.

The styles and research portfolios are judged by local Palmerston North senior stylists.
