Strike a pose! Students at West Suffolk College dazzled in a vibrant and eye-catching display of hair and beauty through the eras.
Punk, 1940s film star, 60s inspired, burlesque, futuristic and the 80s were among the styles which shone in the annual Hair and Beauty Showcase competitions.
The contests ran throughout Monday followed by a final parade for parents and employers.
Tracey Marshall, head of school of hairdressing, beauty and holistic therapies at the college, said: “These competitions are an opportunity for the students to showcase their achievements to their parents and local employers.”
A team of L’Oreal ID artists gave onstage demonstrations of current colouring and styling techniques.
All students received a certificate for taking part in the competition with three winners chosen in each category.
