The Aspire salon at Wiltshire College Chippenham was fully booked with clients who wanted the chance to enjoy a professional style makeover.

The Makeover Day was organised by Level 2 students studying Beauty Therapy, in aid of the charity Changing Faces, which supports people and families living with life changing physical deformities.

Clients enjoyed a 45-minute makeover with the students, who were using the Jane Iredale range, hugely popular with celebrities and even US president Barrack Obama.

Jane Iredale was the first person to supply the beauty industry with a full line up of make-up based on minerals. Her skin care range combines up-to-date colours for every complexion or ethnicity in a formulation that offers serious skin care benefits.

The range is just one of three that the students are qualified to use, including the Advanced Nutrition programme and Environ.

As a result of their training, Wiltshire College Chippenham became the first in the country to be awarded a Centre of Excellence by the International Institute of Anti-Aging.

Last month the Level 3 students raised £75 for the same charity by hosting a one-day skin event where clients could learn more about the condition of their skin.

A skin analyst from the anti-aging skincare brand Environ used powerful Visia imaging technology to capture information and assess common problem areas such as sun damage, brown pigmentation blemishes, capillary damage, wrinkles, scars or imperfections and congested pores.

The events combined have raised around £200.

Heather Terrington, who is the Programme Leader for Beauty Therapy in Chippenham, said: "The salon manager Jane and I are really proud of the students who have given up much of their own time to put these fundraisers on."The students chose this as our nominated charity last year and it looks like it is becoming a permanent fixture here at Chippenham, as it really touches their hearts.

"Some students have already booked to go on to do Cosmetic Camouflage techniques with the IIAA during the holidays."
