NSCG's Academy of Hair and Beauty attend Stoke-on-Trent Pride 2023

Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG) Academy of Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy were at the event to add an extra bit of sparkle to the LGBTQIA+ celebrations.

NSCG's Hair and Beauty lecturers and learners headed to Hanley Park in Shelton at the weekend to help brighten Pride and add an extra touch of razzle dazzle.

They were on hand with lots of body & hair glitter, face painting, hair tinsel and much more with prices ranging between £3-5.

Curriculum Leader for Hairdressing at Stafford College, Natalie Proctor, organised the event, she said: “We’ve had a stand at Pride for years now and it’s always such a great atmosphere and allows the students to get used to working quickly and under pressure.

“We met loads of fantastic people from the LGBTQIA+ community and it was an absolute pleasure to offer our services and advice about our courses."

Around eight Level 2 and 3 Hair and Media Make-up students volunteered to work at the event and were responsible for creating the sparkly looks. Also joining Natalie on the day was hairdressing lecturer, Rebecca Hughes, media make-up lecturer, Jennifer Cadwallader and beauty therapy lecturer, Louise Holmes.

Stoke-on-Trent Pride has quickly grown into one of the City’s biggest and most vibrant annual community festivals welcoming not only the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community but everyone who values and wishes to celebrate diversity.
