Five students on Level 2 & 3 hairdressing & barbering courses at BCoT are taking part in the National Student of the Year Barbering competition run by British Barbers’ Association (BBA).
As part of the competition, Level 2 students have to do a basic haircut and finish, whilst Level 3 students are tasked with doing a precision creative cut and finish.
Photographic entries are then sent to the BBA and are judged by a panel of industry experts. Winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony held at the NEC in Birmingham on 22nd May.
Donna McGuirk, hair and barbering Tutor at BCoT said the competition is an opportunity for students to showcase their talents, and compete against other students in their field. She added:
“Since the start of March when the details of the competition were released, the students have been very excited and professionally planning their entries. Every week they have been practising and perfecting their skills in preparation for the photo shoot of the final entries. As their tutor I am extremely proud of their effort, enthusiasm and commitment to this event and I wish them the best of luck with their entries.”
