Cosmetology Students Win at State Competition

When most people hear about students “going to state competitions”, they think about sports.

But a group of four hundred cosmetology students recently went to state to compete against each other in a battle of style, finesse, and determination.

The 2011 Ohio State Cosmetology Competition was held in November and offered students the opportunity to see how well they perform under competitive pressure. First, second, and third place winners were awarded a Crystal Recognition Trophy for their accomplishment for categories with up to 20 competitors each. (An extra trophy and placement was added for each additional 10 students participating in any category.)

There were 400 students competing in The 2011 Ohio State Cosmetology Competition last year and 80 of them were from the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC). Nineteen of those eighty students placed in the statewide competition.  The competition was held for high school level students enrolled in vocational cosmetology school programs.

The competition features plenty of opportunities to show-off the skills they learned in the cosmetology school at CVCC and the school’s students did just that by excelling in Avant Garde, Fantasy, Nail Technicians, Ladies Team, Ladies Blow Dry and Style, and Bridal categories.

A couple of the CVCC students took home first and second place for bridal styles. The bridal portion of the competition was designed to exhibit students’ ability to create either a day or nighttime bride style, complete with makeup, hair, and nails. Among the other winners from CVCC were students placing first in the Ladies Team category. Students from another cosmetology school, Revere, took home third place in the Ladies Team category. The category required cosmetology school students to create a ladies evening look, complete with a female model dressed in evening attire to complete the presentation. The total look included hair, makeup, and nails.
