What a night!
Team Neon were recently invited to Judge the GCFE Hair & Make Up Show alongside Faculty Director Jeanette Hart, and didn't we have a tough job! The competition is a huge event in Guernsey and learners spend months preparing for the big day. Every year they are given a theme to support their planning and this year it was Spectrum. They choose a model, make costumes, choreograph a routine all alongside many hours spent researching and practicing weird and wonderful hair and make-up ideas. This year was no different. Standards were high, judging was not an easy task!
We had seven different hair and make-up competitions to judge and we found it so difficult we had to ask for extra time on a number of occasions. Right up until the models came on stage we were still deliberating. After much discussion we were finally happy with our choices, finally!
The event is held at the impressive Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts and is a key date in the diary for local salons, selling out every year in under 20 minutes! It is a great opportunity for salon professionals to meet, socialise and discuss key developments within our exciting and creative industry.
Alongside the hair and make-up competitions there were presentations from the performing arts students, a local dance group and the final awards ceremony. It was clear from the noise of the crowd that a great night was had by all. We were honoured to be asked to attend and judge this prestigious event and to share in the success of some very talented learners. A huge well done to everyone involved!
