THE girls at Signature Hair left their mark on the annual Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Hair Show when they took out seven awards.

Salon owner Helen Rimmington was thrilled with the wins.

“I’m very proud of the girls,” she said.

“They were just so excited because they really didn’t expect it. Winning is great but I am really happy that they just got in there and did their best.”

Stephanie Partridge won the Level One Apprentice of the Year Award and Lauren Rimmington won the Certificate Two Make Up Student of the Year and Creative Make Up Award.

International student Clair Rosser blitzed the awards by taking out Certificate Three Student of the Year, Upstyle, Fantasy and Ladies Cut and Colour Awards.

“I couldn’t believe it, I was really overwhelmed,” she said.

“I didn’t do it to win (the awards) I just wanted to have fun and do it for myself.”

The talented student said she created her designs in her head and went from there.

“I just visualised what I wanted in my head and did it as best as I knew how,” she said.

“I was really shocked and excited and overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it. It was a stressful build up the show but it was all worth it.”

The show was a sold-out event with Bundaberg residents keen to view the creative designs.

Around 100 students entered the fierce competition.

The small salon opened in January, and with seven awards already under its belt, it is sure to have a colourful future.

I didn’t do it to win I just wanted to have fun and do it for myself.
