Winners Announced in Texas Cosmetology Student Competition

ClownStudents competed with future cosmetologists from 17 beauty schools in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Arizona at the recent “Taking it to the Next Level Educational Forum” in Fort Worth, Texas.

The student competitors were encouraged to pull out all the stops on their themed entry to create a hair and makeup idea that would wow the judges, spectators and fellow students. Each entry was judged based on creativity, originality, innovation, color and theme.

Jamye Chappell Takes First Place for Fantasy Mannequin Competition

Clowning around was serious work for Jamye Chappell, a cosmetology student from Aladdin Academy in Hurst, but it paid off when her circus clown based theme won first place in the fantasy mannequin competition.

Chappell used more than 200 perm rods to create an Afro look on the clown’s hair and left the hair on the crown of the head straight. She used orange, green, purple, yellow and blue hair coloring for different segments of the mannequin’s hair, taking painstaking measures to prevent the colors from bleeding into the other. She used acrylic paint for the clown makeup that complemented and accentuated the clown’s hair color.

Cosmetology Students from ITS Academy of Beauty Take First in Team Competition

Charlie ChaplinFour students from the ITS Academy of Beauty in Plano brought a common vision into reality and captured first place in the team competition.

Cosmetology students Amanda Comer, Amanda Meyers, Selena Olson and Breanna Mauer created the winning entry with their “Stepping Out from the Old Black and White and Into TV” theme.

Mauer played the role of Charlie Chaplin in both costume and makeup. There was a backdrop of an old television behind her to give the illusion of stepping out from black and white into a colorful future.

“The remarkable thing about this entry was how well all four students were motivated, holding on to the same vision and putting it into a reality by working as a team,” said Veronica Aguilar, director of Aesthetics and forum team coordinator of Plano ITS Academy of Beauty, “We are proud of all of them.”
