WILD and wacky hairstyles were combed into creation by students at Castleford’s Skills Xchange for a special show on Monday.

Twenty hairdressing students at the Wakefield College campus coiffed their models’ locks into “wow factor” styles to gain all-important marks for a hair styling module.

Janet Everall, hairdressing lecturer at the Glass Houghton campus, said: “The show was absolutely fabulous and everyone was very impressed with the students’ hard work.

“We asked the students to go out and research different topics and come up with something with a wow factor which had an avant-garde style. There were some nerves before the show but everybody did a great job.

“The students are at level three which is the highest level of hairdressing you can achieve before studying at university and the quality of the work produced was exceptional.

“We were blown away by their creations and these styles would have worked in a much bigger show.”
