Beauty students from Cornwall College Saltash have just come back from London, where they have been attending the Professional Beauty Show at the ExCel arena. The event is the leading beauty and spa trade show in Europe as well as the largest in the UK, bringing the whole industry together.
Laura Blagdon, Lecturer for Beauty at Cornwall College Saltash, said: “Feedback from our students has been that this trip was a really positive experience for everyone. It is great for them to have the opportunity to learn about current and future trends in the industry.”
With over 800 leading brands, the show brings all the latest products and innovations for beauty, nails, spa therapy and complementary therapy under one roof. Students were able to watch demonstrations, learn what the latest trends are across the sector and buy retail goods at discounted prices.
Level 2 Beauty Therapy student, Katie Uglow, said: “We are really enjoyed the trip. I learnt about so many new products that I hadn’t even heard of before, as well as new techniques for example digital waxing using products which are really ahead of the game. I am really enjoying the course, and would definitely recommend to others.”
