Harlow College's ninth Annual Hair Competition was won by Level 2 Hairdressing student Lillie West. Lillie was selected from an entry of over 100 talented students.

The theme of the competition was 'Seasons of the Year'. Students were tasked with developing a mood board from which to create an entire look including hair, costume and make up (assisted by our talented beauty students).

We wish Lillie the best of luck when she goes on to represent Harlow College at the Chris & Sons Student of the Year competition.

"I still can't believe I won the competition, she said. It's such a great achievement and I'm so proud of myself. I practised, practised and practised so I'm glad all the hard work and effort I put in payed off! Now I'm looking forward to going on to the next stage of the competition and representing the College!
