FANTASY and historical themes were captured in breathtaking hair designs concocted by budding stylists at Yeovil College.

Hairdressing students showcased their sensational designs on the catwalk in front of families, friends and staff to celebrate their work.

The creative teenagers studied at either Yeovil College or the North Dorset Skills Centre in Shaftesbury, and presented imaginative designs, including hair, make-up and costume.

Some designs were inspired by the Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, punk, under the sea, military, and Geisha and avant-garde themes.

Chris Burton, faculty director for sport, hair beauty and complementary therapies, said: "This evening is visible evidence of the excellent hairdressing skills and creative talent of all of our students. The staff have been working with their students to help encourage them to produce challenging and striking designs and the students have excelled themselves. This event provides our students with a platform to showcase their talent to the local community."

The night ended with an awards presentation. NVQ Level 2 student of the year was awarded to Rosie Powell and NVQ Level 3 Student of the Year was Sammie Daniels.

Olivia Bedwell received the VRQ Level 2 award and Stephanie Randell was congratulated for winning the photographic hair and make-up award.

Annalise Collis won the creative craft award while Megan Knight won the Level 2 work-based learning award. Megan was highlighted for her tremendous commitment to the course.

The level 3 work based learning award was presented to Casey Brown who excelled in her assessments. The overall title of most outstanding achievement of the year went to Tanya Douris.

Student Kaylee Taylor from Yeovil is studying her apprenticeship with Cyril Gallie in the town. She said: "I have really enjoyed the experience of taking part in the hair show, it took two hours to complete the hair and make-up on my model but it was worth it."
