The annual Harwich & Dovercourt High School Academy’s Hair Show on 17th April 2018, was an overwhelming success. Hairdressing students created looks based around given themes as part of their assessments for their Hairdressing qualifications before launching the catwalk event to a packed audience of family, friends, local hairdressers and Sigma staff.
The event was judged by Alter Ego Hair Design -Colchester, Raymond’s Hair Studio – Dovercourt and Carmel Tate City & Guilds IQA.
In the Rainbow category students were asked to create a total look around the colour of a sari. The winner of this category was Olivia Castle (14) of Clacton County High School with her model and teacher Miss Fennell-Doyle.
6th Form students presented their colour, cut & finish models and Rachel Pasquale was the winner with model Frankie Bennett.
The ‘Glamorous’ section was won by Courtney Currie where she created beautiful pin curls on her model, glamorous Nan Cindy Campbell.
The stunning Men’s cut and finish was modelled by Huy Dinh and was cut and styled by Rachel Pasquale. Judges were really impressed with the standard on particularly difficult to cut hair.
Our Rising Star Award went to Taylor Roberts (year 7) who created a pretty bun with curls on little Paige Elmer who stole the hearts of the audience and judges.
The overall theme of the show was 1970’s and in the Charlie’s Angels section Chloe Gladwin’s Farrah Fawcett style flicks on her model Tiffany Woods impressed the judges and won this section.
The crowd erupted when HDHS Head Teacher Mrs Finch took to the catwalk as a 1970’s disco diva. The winner of this category was Sapphire Davids on HDHS teacher Miss Burney where she rocked Biba style curls dressed in an orange flared jump suit.
There was even a category for Harwich’s Top Model and it was won by the HDHS, Mrs Parker, Head of Performing Arts. She wowed the crowd demonstrating her amazing ability to dance in platform heels to 1970’s Bee Gee’s hit ‘Night Fever’.
The Overall Winner was unanimously voted to Rachel Pasquale, winner of 2 other awards. Rachel (17) says that ‘she was shocked, happy and couldn’t stop smiling and is very proud of being a HDHS Hairdressing Student!’
