Holly bags silver in national hairdressing final

North Shropshire College student Holly Williams has been celebrating after she collected a Silver medal for hairdressing at the national WorldSkills UK finals in Cardiff recently. 

To achieve the award, Holly created an image on the theme of ‘festivals’, successfully demonstrating how she produced the style and finish, showing both continuity of design and her transferrable skills. 

She also produced a mood board in advance, showing how she would create her image. 

Holly bagged the medal after undergoing months of regional heats and intensive training. It was awarded by a panel of judges drawn from industry, colleges and training providers. 

Holly said: “I was over the moon and beyond happy. I feel very proud of myself that I have achieved this.” 

More than 500 young students and apprentices took part in the 2022 WorldSkills UK Finals. They learned of their victory during a special live programme from Channel 4’s Packed Lunch studios, presented by Steph McGovern.
