Bedford got an injection of glamour with the annual Hair and Beauty Show.

Models making their way from Brooks Hair and Beauty salon on the High Street to the Bedford Corn Exchange stopped traffic and led to a flurry of social media postings on Thursday (May 25).

The coronation year theme was kings and queens with examples of a queen bee, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley and queens from history.

The annual event is part of The Bedford College Group calendar and involves dozens of students and apprentices, supported by hair and beauty salons as well as Love Bedford which donated £500 in shopping vouchers as prizes.

One lucky winner also got a £150 voucher from Baker Brothers Diamonds of Bedford.

Ian Pryce CBE, college CEO, said: “The hair and beauty industry is something in which the UK leads the world. Our students are helping others to look great and importantly feel good about themselves.”
