To celebrate Coventry as the City of Culture 2021, Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training’s hairdressing apprentices have tested their skills as part of a celebration of Coventry’s rich musical heritage, two-tone.

The apprentices were challenged to explore two-tone, its influence on music, fashion, politics, and culture, and create a total look for the skills competition.

Jayne Powell, Trainer at Chamber Training, remarked: “Our apprentices were exposed to working under pressure with strict time scales when styling the hair. They had to plan their look creating a mood board and ensure they had all tools, products, and equipment.

“The work of a hairdresser during a competition is very different to working in a salon. Different techniques may be required, depending on the style and theme of the event and
 the apprentices had to research the era, explore the key influences and culture in order to create their version of two-tone style.”

The apprentices produced a high standard of work, battling against the clock and each other as part of their apprenticeship journey.

Chamber Training believes in stretching and challenging apprentices through skills competitions, enabling individuals to extend their skills, gain valuable experiences and learn new things in fun ways.

Apprenticeships are all about combining theory and practice whatever the job role is about. Chamber Training ensures that apprentices gain a wide range of experiences and opportunities to develop valuable skills.
