Pembrokeshire College hairdressing student, Jake Morgan has proved he has what it takes to stand out in the industry after taking home first prize in the ‘Barbering’ competition at the prestigious Salon Cymru 2015 competition.
Jake entered the ‘Barbering’ category where judges were looking for stylists to cut, style and finish a look in 30 minutes. Jake said: "Taking part in these competitions is nerve-wracking but a great experience.”
More than 120 competitors take part in this annual event which attracts an audience of around 500 hairdressing enthusiasts and some of the best judges in the industry.
Jake commented: “I didn’t expect to win when I saw the competition! It came as a complete surprise. Winning a competition like this has certainly given me more confidence and will look really good on my CV.”
Jake plans to continue with his studies at the College by completing a work-based Level 3 NVQ in Hairdressing.
Keep up the good work Jake!
