The Winners of Hair Council Student of the Year Competition Revealed
Following a photographic competition, judged by Patrick Cameron, Andrew Barton and Jamie Stevens, eight Level 2 and eight Level 3 students competed in the final of the Hair Council Student of the Year Competition in association with Goldwell and VTCT.
The practical part of the competition took place at The Goldwell Academy in central London where the finalists had to recreate their original photographic look.
This stage of the competition was judged by Sean Hanna’s Artistic Director and session stylist, Yesmin O’Brien as well as Rebecca Adams and Sally Shiels from The Chapel, and Jayne Schauenburg, a previous winner herself and hairdressing educator.
The next step of the competition was to be interviewed by HJi’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr, VTCT’s Sam Luce and Jayne Schauenburg. They were not just asked about their work, but also the work of the Hair & Barber Council.
CEO/registrar of the Hair & Barber Council Keith Conniford said; “Each year I am amazed and humbled by the passion, commitment and dedication the entrants show for their craft and for the industry as a whole. They are the lifeblood of our great industry and the future ‘stars’ of tomorrow!”
