Beauty students attend UK’s leading beauty event in London
Published 31 Mar 2015Beauty Therapy students from the North Highland College UHI have recently returned from a trip to the Professional Beauty Exhibition at the ExCel in London.
With more than 800 brands, including Clarins, 3D Lipo, CACI, Dermalogica, CND and OPI the exhibition houses all the different aspects of the beauty industry. The students were able to be a part of the latest launches and see this year's beauty trends first hand.
The students that attended the UK's leading beauty event were, Chloe Anderson, Elly Jackson, Ashley Johnson, Emily Mahood, Courtney McIvor, Katie Moar, Chloe Pritchard, Erin Sutherland, Lauren Wilson, Susan New, Lorna Philip and Lynne Stewart along with beauty lecturers Caroline MacDonald, Carey Youngson and Kirsty Scollay.
Commenting on the trip, beauty lecturer Caroline MacDonald said; "The student's highlights were watching the nail enhancements and eyebrow demonstrations along with getting to meet Amy Childs! Some of our students had never been to London so they definitely enjoyed getting to see the big city life. The trip from start to finish went brilliant and the students were a joy to take away!"
To fund the trip, students each paid £100 and then raised £223.85 through their enterprise unit where they held a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and suppliers.
The event gave the students the opportunity to touch, test and compare products, update their skills at beauty seminars and take part in exciting competitions as well as network with the most influential businesses in the industry. Free treatment demos and talks also ran for the two days of the exhibition across different live stages focussed on beauty and advanced treatments of make-up and hair.
