VU hair and make-up students triumph in Battle of the Colleges

Victoria University's hairdressers, make-up artists and modelling students have proven they're among the best in the state after winning the International Hairstylists Society (IHS) annual Battle of the Colleges competition last month.

Drawing inspiration from the movie My Fair Lady, students from VU's Personal Services programs created a themed collection of hair and fashion to beat out six rival colleges from across Melbourne.

The students prepared for the competition at VU's City King Campus before competing at The Palms, Crown Casino.

Hairdressing teacher Antonelle Lindrea, who has been Artistic Director of VU's entrants into the IHS Battle of the Colleges for the past three years, said the contest was an exciting forum for students to assess their own performance against their peers.
