Fashion capital beckons for stylish students

June 13, 2014

A group of hairdressing students from West Cheshire College have had a taste of Parisian style, after visiting the fashion capital of the world.

The lucky group of students, all studying Level 3 and 4 qualifications in hairdressing were whisked away to the Wella World Studio to learn from the best in the business.

Hot on the heels of Paris Fashion Week, the students got to experience the latest trends in hair colour as well as see cut and style demonstrations with real models. 

Vicky Fay, 19, from Ellesmere Port, who is studying Advanced Practice and Management in Hairdressing at the College, said: “It was absolutely fantastic and I now understand about Wella colour ID and how it allows you to place colour next to colour without it running.

“I also learnt a lot about Paris and it was great for the tutors to arrange such an amazing trip.”

The trip is one of many organised by the College as a way to enhance all students’ knowledge and enable them to gain practical experience.

Charlotte Bradley, 19, from Chester, who is also studying Advanced Practice and Management in Hairdressing said: “The trip was amazing and I have learnt so much from going. I already have the Paris blues and would relish the opportunity to go again.”

As part of an additional trip planned by the College, a group of Level 2 hairdressing students were also taken to experience the Wella Studios in London.

Hairdressing Lecturer at West Cheshire College, Lesley Durham, said: “I really wanted to give the students an exciting trip.

“Paris is known as the fashion capital of the world, so was the perfect place for students to experience all the latest trends.”
