Local apprentices from various parts of Plymouth recently assembled and were ready to go head to head (or hair to hair) as Plymouth based company and one of the largest independent training providers in the company, Skills Group, held their annual hairdresser and barbering competition. Louise Harrop, Skills Group’s Service Sector Manager believes that “Competitions are an important part of helping Skills Group apprentices show their employers the range of skills they have.”

The day long event took place at the Holiday Inn and saw young apprentice’s battling it out in various themed categories dependent on their level of training.

The judges consisted of skilful hairdressers including current owner of Energy Hair in Topsham, Nathan Plumridge, owner of K D Styling in Tavistock, Donna Wilson and Tinamaria Clifford of Newton Abbot Hair Academy.

There was a themed category for all levels to engage in. ‘Day at the Races’ was designed specifically for those who had been training for less than a year, ‘Colour Cocktail’ for intermediate hairdressers, ‘City Slickers’ for intermediate barbers, and ‘Razor Sharp’ was the theme for the advanced category. Lauren Davis of Envy Hair Salon took first prize for the novice section, with Lara Donnelly of Arena Creative Hair Salon seizing top position for the intermediate as well as Josh Bunker of Cutting Company Hair and Beauty placing first for his impressive barbering skills in the intermediate themed category. The advanced theme ‘Razor Sharp’ witnessed Lacey Keating of Chameleon Hair Design claim her well deserved crown.

Congratulations to all!
