Leading hairdresser visits Sussex Downs College


One of the UK’s most successful hairdressers, known as Beverly C, visited Sussex Downs College on Thursday to give students a masterclass in styling.

The masterclass took place in the Kings Restaurant at Sussex Downs College, and hairdressing students, apprentices and local stylists flocked to see Beverly C transform four models live on stage.

The evening was a joint venture between Sussex Downs College and Goldwell, returning to the college after a two-year hiatus.

Prior to the presentation, Beverly C spoke to hairdressing students at the college about her career history, inspiring a new generation of stylists in the town.

Guests at the event included the team from Fringe Hair Design & Beauty Salon in Little Common. Senior stylist and deputy manager Rebecca Spiers said, “It was a brilliant evening.”

She added, “My favourite style was the short haircut; it’s the type of style I’d love to recreate.

“Beverly described how she achieved the cut and colour for the model. I really enjoyed it and I’m inspired to try out the looks.”

Hospitality students provided the catering on the evening and flowers were provided by floristry students.

On the night a raffle was held in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
