Trimming with confidence: Fenland teenager’s bid to become Student Hairdresser of the Year

A FENLAND teenager will bid to become the Student Hairdresser of the Year after trimming, snipping and styling her way into the national finals of the competition.

Lucie Tulett, 19, from Chatteris, wowed judges at the London heats of the Hairdressing Council’s Student of the Year Awards - taking first place with her colourful style.

Lucie, who recently qualified for her advanced apprenticeship at the College of West Anglia’s Isle Campus, excelled in the competition, which saw hopefuls given 45 minutes to create a contemporary style on a model.

Michelle Prior, the talented teenager’s course director, said: “Lucie was extremely calm considering the buzz and pressure of the situation.

“She kept her nerve and it paid off because her creation gained her first place in these heats. We are very proud of Lucie’s achievements and wish her all the best in her future projects.”

Lucie, who works at Just Hair in Chatteris, said: “The competition in London was an amazing experience and allowed me to express my creative skills. I am now looking forward to taking part in the October national finals.”
