Hairdressing students at Sir John Gleed School have started out how they mean to go on after a competition to create styles for a special occasion.
About 15 Year Ten students were asked to produce their own hair designs suitable for a school prom based on their own research in magazines and online.
Christina Howells emerged as the winner, with Klaudia Wodyk second and Georgia West third.
Teacher Karen Bailey said: “They had to create a mood board showing the design they were trying to come up with and then practice it on a mannequin.
“Judges marked the students on the mood board and final hairstyle which will help them with their two-year hairdressing course.”
