You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream was the cheer of the day as the three-person team from ITS Academy of Beauty, in Irving, Texas captured first place with their entry, 101 Flavors, at the regional hair competition at Educational Forum in Fort Worth.

Cosmetology students Marcus Johnson, LaToya Massey, Verlecia Washington and model Precious Hicklen (also an ITS Academy of Beauty student) had 55 minutes in the arena to construct the hair and make up for their entry. Oodles of hair were not only colored and fashioned to create the models hair and cookie-inspired bonnet, but the models dress as well.

"These students are extremely talented", said Andrea Bryant who was recently named director of the Irving cosmetology school. "Their unique approach, cooperative spirit, as well as hours of practice before the event really paid off."

The contestants in all the competitions, three-person team, fantasy hair and bridal hair, were encouraged to pull out the stops on their themed entry and create a project that would wow the judges, spectators and fellow students. Each entry was judged based on creativity, originality, innovation, color and theme.

ITS Academy of Beauty in Irving is a cosmetology school that provides students with a distinguished environment that mirrors many of the upscale salons that will employ the students after they graduate and earn their cosmetology license.
