Industry professionals inspired by hair and beauty showcase

Updated 24/04/2015

Gower College Swansea recently hosted an evening to celebrate and inspire Welsh talent across the hair and beauty sector.

The hair and make-up masterclass at Sketty Hall was attended by staff, students and local industry professionals who enjoyed practical demonstrations from salon director (and former student) Casey Coleman and Chris Howells, international make-up artist for Laura Mercier.

“This was a chance to show off the very best of Welsh talent in action,” says Learning Area Manager Bernie Wilkes. “Not only was it a hugely enjoyable event which inspired everyone who attended, it was also an opportunity to show how gaining qualifications in this sector can lead to exciting careers that take you around the world."

"Casey is a fantastic example of this - he has just returned from Australia and is also a finalist at Pro Hair Live, which could see him being crowned Avant Garde Extensionist of the year!"
