Level Two students based their hair and make-up designs on the theme of the ocean and level three on the natural elements.

Members of Polka Dot Academy, Spalding, modelled the designs and performed to the 160-strong audience made up of representatives of salons and colleges.

Lee Stafford also gave a demonstration of his cutting techniques and offered a cut and blow dry, worth about £360, to the winner of a prize draw.

He also sat on a panel of judges to choose the winning student designs.
