Top Names From Hair And Beauty Head To Kensington and Chelsea College

An audience of top employers and industry experts will be lining the front row for Kensington and Chelsea College’s Christmas Hair and Beauty show.

‘Snowline’ takes place at the College’s Kensington Centre on Wednesday December 17, from 1pm-3pm, and is aimed at connecting budding stylists and beauticians with top industry names.

As part of the show, the College’s level 1, 2 and 3 hairdressing, and level 2 media make-up course students will showcase their skills by hosting a catwalk, featuring models they have styled.

Student moodboards will also be on display to highlight the creative process behind each of the catwalk looks. A special panel of industry experts will also be revealing who they have judged as the winners for the show’s best moodboard, and outstanding hairstyle and overall look.

Winning students will walk away with a selection of top prizes sponsored by City and Guilds, Goldwell, Chris and Sons, Avlon Industries and multi award winning stylist, Junior Green.

Among other top names attending ‘Snowline’ are Charlotte Mensah – crowned 2014 Afro Hairdresser of the Year at the Hairdressers Journal British Hairdressing Awards; Clifford McDavid – international celebrity and session hairstylist; Justin Tellus – Educational Director of HABIA Japan; Desmond Murray – multi award winning stylist and member of the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of fame and Verna McKenzie one of the Afro Hair and Beauty Show organisers and part of the Black Beauty Sensationnel Hair awards team.

Kensington and Chelsea College’s Hair and Beauty Department is staffed by tutors who are industry experts and/or working as hairdressers and stylists themselves. The department also operates a fully functioning commercial salon at the College’s Kensington Centre, which also acts as a professional training base for students, allowing them to perfect their skills on real paying clients.
