NORTH Devon College's NVQ 3 hairdressing students proved they are among the best snippers in the country after getting into the finals of the Guild/HairBoo Photo Stylist Competition 2009, sponsored by Schwarzkopf.

The students were entered into the Junior Stylist, Cut and Colour Photographic category of the competition. North Devon College art student Lindsey Ditchburn showcased her talents and helped prepare the entries by taking the photos.

The models were friends, relatives and fellow students that also gave up their time to help with the applications.

It was the first time the students had entered a national competition and from over 120 applicants, ten finalists were chosen. An amazing six of the 10 finalists were from North Devon College!

The finals were held in Northampton. Unfortunately they were not placed as the winner or runner up, but all received a huge gift bag containing scissors, brushes and equipment and a certificate and to have six students in the final is an amazing achievement.
