Hair and Beauty Fashion show

Mardi Gras meets The MET at charity Hair and Make-up Show!


Students at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College wowed a packed audience of fashion lovers with their annual Hair and Make-up show. This year’s theme was Mardi Gras, which saw some incredibly creative creations from students studying at both Central Brighton and Broadwater Campuses.

Sussex Cancer Fund was delighted to have been chosen as the main beneficiary of this year’s fund raising from the show. The charity is very close to the hearts of several MET staff members within the Hair and Beauty team.

The show, which took place at the college’s Pelham Street Main Hall, was compèred by Heart FM’s Nicola Hume and featured over 120 students studying a variety of hair and make-up courses.

This year’s VIP judges were: Rachel Hunt (Francesco Group), Daniel Lustig, Stephen Webb and Jacqui Taylor (Lustig and Webb) and Dan Leo Stanley and Lora Griffin (Simon Webster Hair)


Judge, Lora Griffin said:

“I’m pleased to be involved as I want to support local hairdressing. I had a sporadic, broken education so the fact that the MET are offering such high quality education, with career opportunities afterwards is something I think is really exciting and quite special. All the judges were really blown away with the standard.”


Judge, Daniel Lustig (who features on Channel 4’s Gogglebox) said:

“I love judging this competition – it’s good fun and an opportunity to see who the next big talent out there is going to be.”

This year’s Best in Show prizewinner (across all categories) was: Djenabu Miranda  with her stunning creation featuring glorious feathers. To see the full list of Winners and runners up please visit the college website
