Stamford College Hosts AHT Competition Regional Heats

Stamford College, part of Inspire Education Group, hosted the Midlands Regional Heats for the Association of Hairdressers and Therapists (AHT) Competition, in which hairdressing and beauty students from across the nation showcase their skills and compete against one another.


Various colleges from across the area arrived in their busloads to Stamford College’s Borderville Sports Complex, ready to compete in a variety of hair and beauty specialist categories. From bridal, to Fantasy Hairdressing, to more general competitions such as ‘Barbering Cut & Finish’, students’ designs were scored by a panel of expert judges from the Association of Hairdressers and Therapists, ahead of an awards ceremony that drew the event to a close.
