Alien looks at Edinburgh college beauty department


HAIR and beauty lecturers from colleges across Scotland took part in a special effects masterclass this week.




Representatives from Habia (Hair and Beauty Industry Authority) led the sci-fi themed session, called “Out of this world”, at Edinburgh College.


Lecturers practiced and showcased skills including bald caps, prosthetics and a frame for hair to create an alien look on their model.




Frances Bain, curriculum manager for hair, beauty and complementary therapies at Edinburgh College, said: “It was incredible to see the creativity on show at this event.

“ The techniques demonstrated by the experts from Habia were from the leading edge of the industry, and gave teaching staff from the college and across Scotland a prized insight into how to use these skills and pass them onto students. “
