UK Student of the Year Awards 2017
Many congratulations to Liberty Clark from Francesco Group who won the Level 2 competition and to Jurgita Allen from Coleg Cambria who won the Level 3 competition. Jurgita was our Level 2 winner for 2016 and for the first time ever we have someone who has won the competition two years in a row.
"It was so exciting to win! I really enjoyed the day and am still over the moon that I won. I'm looking forward to being able to promote myself with a new title and show off my beautiful little trophy.
With the encouragement and advice I got from the judges afterwards I'm planning to do the best I can with some new knowledge and connections. I'll be looking out for updates on the Hair Council's progress and am truly inspired to become a part of it in the future." Liberty Clark, Level 2 winner pictured (left) with her model and Anne Veck.
"I am so proud and pleased to have won the Hair Council Student of the Year for the second year in a row! This last year has opened so many opportunities and has enabled me to grow as a stylist and as a person. I am proud to use SRH after my name and am so much more aware of the importance of state registration which I have been promoting with my college, work place and on social media. I am looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities that may arise from winning this amazing competition again." Jurgita Allen, Level 3 winner pictured (right) with her model and Anne Veck.
