Head turning hairstyles were dazzlingly displayed by students from West Herts College in a celebration carnival for Peace Hospice Care.

Parading their wonderful work, the level 1, 2, & 3 students stepped out on the catwalk entertaining a packed audience that included Day Care patients from the Starlight Centre at the Hospice.

Front row seats were saved for the Starlight Centre guests and staff who sat back to enjoy  a parade of colourful hair creations,  a dance display and a stirring musical performance from talented student musicians 'Midnight Trio'.

For the past six months, a group of West Herts students have been offering their nail and hair skills to the Starlight Centre's 'Feel Good Friday' participants.

Their  pampering's have provided a welcoming boost to the patients and an opportunity for the students to put their training to good use

'Working with the Peace Hospice has been a great help to our students,' said Caroline Gibbs, West Herts College  Level 3 Tutor. 'It is a great work experience for them in a supportive environment.'

Proceeds from the Carnival event were donated to Peace Hospice Care.
