College Student cuts through the competition to make it to Prestigious National Hairdressing Final
Hairdressing student Raminta Petuchovaite, 28, from Ruislip has shown she can cut it with the best by making it through to the prestigious British Hairdressing Student of the Year Final 2014.
The Tower Hamlets College student will compete for the coveted title at the final in London on 12th October, under the auspices of the British Hairdressing Council.
On Sunday 12th October 2014 the Finals, comprising of a 50 minute practical and 10 minute interview, take place at L'Oréal Studios in London, moving on to Salon International where the winners will be announced later that day live on stage.
The finalists will be judged by industry experts who will be looking at the competitors’ techniques, creativity, cutting and styling skills as well as their passion for the industry.
In the final, Raminta will be required to recreate her initial entry to the competition as well as make a ten minute presentation to the judging panel about her creative inspirations. Her competition entry featured an asymmetrical bob inspired by fire and passion, which was influenced by the geometric cuts made famous by Vidal Sassoon.
The winner will enjoy a trip to Parliament for afternoon tea as well as getting to spend a day with renowned hairdresser Andrew Barton at his Covent Garden salon. Andrew is one of the hairdressing industry’s most experienced and highly regarded figures and is stylist to some of the UK’s biggest stars as well as being the resident hairdresser on the UK TV show ’10 Years Younger.’
Raminta said “I am very excited to be in the final. I still can’t really believe it. I had an amazing tutor who really sparked my interest in hairdressing and motivated me.”
