A leading figure in the north east hairdressing scene recently visited a local college to give a demonstration of the latest trends, cuts and styles.

TONI&GUY’s Jen Deighton visited East Durham College, in Peterlee, to demonstrate the hairdressing giant’s latest collection alignment of advanced cuts and colours, including ladies and gents hair.

Jen, who runs the highly successful TONI&GUY salon in Sunderland, is a leading player in the industry and has been a five times finalist at the British Hairdressing Awards, North East Finals.

“It’s great to see all the familiar faces again at the College. It is a real pleasure to help inspire local salons with the new collections from TONI&GUY and to know that the staff at the College will pass on the skills to students, helping them to gain employment in the industry,” said Jen.

The masterclass session included the techniques of creating styles and the blending of colours and how they can be adapted to salon use with professional results.

Trudy Wood, from Trudy's Hair and Nails Salon in Horden, said: “I like to grab every opportunity I can to come to the College for these events, there is so much to learn and the staff and facilities at EDC are wonderful.”

Charlotte London, from Horden, who works for Trudy and was a student at the College from 2008 to 2010, added: “I had a great experience at EDC and I learnt loads from the tutors during my courses.

“I ended up with an apprentice position at Trudy’s and was then given a full time job.

“It’s great to come back to the College and learn new skills from Jen and the team.”

Simon Smith, Curriculum Leader for Hair & Beauty at the College, added: “We are delighted to welcome back Jen, these TONI&GUY masterclasses are fantastic. It’s a great way for us to offer businesses out their some really unique training.”
