The sold out crowd of family and friends were treated to big quiffs and even bigger nails, as well as intricate outfits.

Styles showcased included gothic, vintage, drag and fantasy as the students let their creativity run wild.

James Steer showed off a gothic look he worked on with fellow hair student Lauren Bennington, while Emily Amos modelled some eye-catching nails created by Emma Tierley, who hopes to start up her own nail business when she finishes the course.
