New College Stamford students smash AHT awards and have come away with 22 place finishes, and 5 1st place finishes!  

New College stamford’s Borderville campus played host to the 2019 regional AHT competition. Various colleges from the surrounding areas enter into the competition and compete in a variety of different categories which is then scored by a panel of expert judges from the AHT (Association of Hair and Therapists). The competition has grown year on year and this year was no different, the number of competitors and the level of work was better than ever before which made for some hard judging from the panel of experts.

Over the course of the day, there was a variety of categories covering all different skill areas of Hair, Beauty and Make-up. Categories included’Cut and Blow dry’, ‘Blow dry’, ‘Classical Make-up’, ‘Bridal’, ‘Fantasy’, ‘Gender Transformation’, ‘Ladies Evening Style’ and ‘Body Painting’. The Level of work that was on display was amazing and to see all the different ideas that the students had implemented was fantastic.

The judges were so impressed by New College Stamford’s students that in some of the categories, our College took a clean sweep taking home 1st place 2nd place and third place! See below the categories on how New College Stamford did -

  • 1st 2nd & 3rd place – Team Bridal 
  • 1st & 3rd place – Classic 1940′s Make-up
  • 2nd & 3rd place – Cut and Blow Dry
  • 1st place – Fantasy Total Look
  • 1st & 2nd place – 1st year Blow Dry
  • 2nd & 3rd place – Gender Transformation
  • 1st place – Ladies Evening Style

Finishing in the top three in any of the categories means that you will progress on and represent your college at the National Finals which will take place in the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom later this year! We will be routing for all of our super talented students when they travel there and hopefully they can bring home even more silverware.

We would like to thank once again for all the colleges that participated in the competition and thank Borderville Sports Centre for being such an accommodating host, and finally to congratulate our students on their brilliant achievements!
