Hair show raises £550 for Overgate

A GROUP of hairdressing students have raised hundreds by putting on their own catwalk show.

The Valentine’s Catwalk Show gave the trainee stylists the chance to show off their favourite styles.

Friends, families and college staff helped to raise £550 for Overgate Hospice, Elland, at the sold out show held at Holy Trinity Church, Ovenden.

The students are based at the North Halifax Skills Centre, Ovenden, which is part of Calderdale College, and are working towards NVQ Level 3 qualifications in hairdressing or barbering.

Models of all ages helped the students showcase the techniques they have learnt including ribbon effects, fish tail plaits, extensions, crimping, curls and colouring.

College principal Chris Jones said he was incredibly proud of their efforts.
