On Wednesday, the 30th of March 2022, Stamford College hosted the regional heat for the AHT (Association of Hairdressers and Therapists) annual competition, in which nationwide hairdressing and beauty students compete against one another.
Students can compete in competitions that specialise in a style, like bridal or 1980s make-up, or other general competitions like "Editorial Make-up" or "Ladies Hairstyling".
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 Association of Hair and Therapists.
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.
