Hairdressing Department at Templemore College of Further Education Compete Nationally

Students in their second year of hairdressing studies took part in the College Hair Competition at St. Johns College Cork city recently. This has been an annual event for our students who have been busy in their preparations for the national competition and success was their reward.

A number of students competed in various categories including Ruth Auld who took part in the women’s cut and colour, Cathy Brennan and Olivia O’Hanlon who took part in the women’s up style and Beth Hiscock who took part in the fantasy live model.​

On the day Sarah Corcoran, Gillian Jordan, Michaela O ‘Shea and Sonia Ryan came 3rd in the fantasy hair creation category.

The level of creativity and hard work shown at the competition are a testament to the students and staff of the hairdressing department within the college.


Last year saw the college build on to its facility to provide a state of the art facility designed to provide the best opportunities for students. Many workshops and events take place in the salon; recently students benefited from the experience of renowned hairdresser Kieran O’ Gorman who provided a workshop on colour and cutting and previous to that students were able to get practical and hands on experience from a workshop undertaken by Claire Meade a colour technician.  One of the students in attendance commented on the workshop saying “It is really interesting to undertake workshops; it gives us more of an insight into the industry and the different areas we can move into”.

The college open day and evening takes place on Wednesday, 25th March 2015 from 11am- 3:30pm and from 6:30pm-9:30pm. We encourage everyone to come visit the college and see the facilities on offer in all departments.
