Hair and makeup display students’ creativity

I recently had the joy of attending the awards for the NMIT’s Top of the South Trades Academy (TOTSA) hairdressing and beauty competitions.  

International styling, the solar system and Halloween all featured in NMIT’s Top of the South Trades Academy (TOTSA) hairdressing and beauty competitions recently.

The theme for this year’s competition was Around the World and the Level 2 students 

worked in groups of three as either the hairstylist, make-up artist or model.

Level 3 Creative Hair and Beauty students created the whole look themselves on models, and the Marlborough students had hairstyles pre-done on mannequins, and photographed the make-up on each other for display. The winners for this section were cast through public vote.

The students put a lot of work and effort into their looks and the judges agreed it was hard to decide on the place-getters. 

Place-getters were as follows-:

Level 2

1st – Payton Webber, Skye Cole, Madi Morgan, Nga Meh.

2nd – Carolanne Ker, Kaylee Streeter, Alicia Hunt.

3rd – Gabrielle Heslop, Hannah Savage, Piper Blackbourn.

Highly commended – Libby Green, Maria Ku Meh, Tisha Dickman.

Level 3

1st – Alara Neuman.

2nd – Kristen Senekal.

3rd – Rose Stuart.

Public vote - Mannequins 

1st – Ella Gladman

2nd – Reihana Turner-Taylor

3rd – Danielle Freeth 

Public vote – Make-up

Mia McNicholl

The tutors were also impressed with the students’ ability to work as a team, and to use the skills they have learnt during their course to come up with some very creative looks.

The NMIT Trades Academy courses are always popular and a perfect way for secondary school students to try out an industry and see first-hand what it's like to study and train at NMIT.
