Howard Street in Bedford became a beauty spot when students from Brooks Hair & Beauty training salon took to the streets.

The part-time students were marking the completion of their course with a display of creative skills and stepped out into the sunshine to show off their plumage and costumes.

Bedford College advanced practitioner, Melissa Peacock, said: “Social distancing has made this a particularly challenging year for hair and beauty students but they have come up trumps and proved they are not only resilient but also talented.
