Olympian University Cosmetology Student Brittanie Ashcraft Takes 1st in Fantasy Hair Contest
Students and faculty at Olympian University in Alamogordo are proud as peacocks after cosmetology student Brittanie Ashcraft captured 1st place in the Fantasy Hair competition at the recent Hair Forum Competition in Fort Worth, Texas.
The contestants in the fantasy category were encouraged to pull out the stops on their themed entry to create a hair and makeup idea on a mannequin that would wow the judges, spectators and fellow students. Each entry was judged based on creativity, originality, innovation, color and theme.
Ashcraft’s entry mirrored a peacock with teal and blue hair fashioned to look like the fan of the flamboyant bird. Using the eye of the mannequin to resemble the eye of the peacock feathers, the Ruidoso resident carefully drew a feather across the mannequin’s face. The tule bodice of the mannequin reflected peacock colors as well.
Smith credits the school’s winning record to its smaller size and the instructor’s commitment to bring out the best in each student.
“We are thrilled to have produced so many winners, but mostly we want our students to enjoy their educational experience and help train them to become successful cosmetologists. Bringing home a trophy is just icing on the cake.”
Olympian University is a cosmetology school that provides students with a distinguished environment that mirrors many of the upscale salons that will employ Olympian University students after they graduate and earn their cosmetology license.
