Highbury Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy students provided a professional hair and beauty service to the young people who took part in the UK Rock Challenge Tour on 1 March.

The UK Rock Challenge event, held at the Portsmouth Guildhall was one of a series of national and global events with the aim to encourage young people to remain drugs-free by experiencing natural highs through music and dance. It is a global venture, with countries such as Japan, New Zealand and Australia also taking part.

Kate Eaton, Highbury Hairdressing Lecturer said: ‘This event gives our Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy students great confidence for working on different types of hair and skin types and gives our students the challenge of working with young people’.

Eleven local Portsmouth schools took part and the winning team will go through regional and national competitions – Highbury wishes them well!
