Guests were treated to a night of colour, glamour and creativity at this year’s South West TAFE’s Pure Academy Hair and Beauty Showcase and Awards on Monday.
Hair, beauty and nail technology students showcased long hair, nail art, off the wall and fantasy makeup and bridal hair styles.
Hair, beauty and massage senior educator Kathy Hall said the 80 students had been preparing for the past three months, looking at current fashion trends and finding inspiration for their entries.
Ms Hall said the awards night gave the students an opportunity to develop their confidence and imagination as they presented their work to be scrutinised. “It’s also a chance for them to show off their creativity and let their artistic flair shine as opposed to the commercial salon work they are used to producing,” she said.
She said the event was a culmination of their year’s work and demonstrated the skills they had gained.
