XPOSURE has been running for 18 years and is targeted at students of training academies and colleges who are currently studying for their NVQ level 2 or 3 or VRQ level 2 or 3.

Entrants must create a commercial cut and colour model look, upload a photograph and answer four questions. Photographic entries are then judged by Wella Guest Artists and the successful competitors go through to the next stage of the competition – an XPOSURE Regional Heat. At the Regional Heats, competitors are asked to style and finish their model within one hour, using Wella Professionals products.

The last stage is the National Final taking place at Wella World Studio in London.

Fifteen students from the south have been chosen to go through to the regional heat in London on the 3rd May - two of which are from Exeter College - Lily-Rose Kendrick and Seren Winsor-Williams.

Lecturer, Aimi Satterly said:

We are passionate about students taking every opportunity they have to promote themselves. Entering competitions like Xposure gives learners the opportunity to aspire and develop their creativity to the next level, showcasing to employers that they have the confidence and ability to interpret current industry trends and techniques. This will enhance their future career choices and exposure to the ever-changing world of hairdressing.”

We wish all the students taking part good luck for the final in May.
