An East Durham College barbering student has received a regional award, voted for by top local salons.
Georgia Leadbetter, 23, from Seaham, won the Best Upcoming Talent award at the Hair Club Live show in Newcastle.
The aim of the event was to give students the opportunity to show off their skills and the chance to shine away from the salon.
And, out of 16 students who took part, Georgia was selected as the best newcomer on the night, with her cut on model Corey Fishwick.
She said: “The show was a fantastic experience. I was a bit nervous at first as it was a completely different environment to be working in compared to a salon, but I am really glad I took part.”
