The reputation of Chesterfield College's hair and beauty salon attracted visitors from far and wide this week, all looking to gain an insight into the experience of the UK hair and beauty industry.
Students from hairdressing colleges in Japan, currently on internships here in the UK, visited the Infirmary Road campus, taking part in lessons and swapping techniques with its resident students.
Japanese College Directors also took a tour of the campus and met with staff.
The visiting students also took advantage of the College's excellent Quadrant restaurant, enjoying a delicious three course meal.
Accompanying the Japanese delegates was organiser Justin Tellus, an International Educator for the Hairdressing and Beauty Industry Authority (HABIA) in Japan.
Following a previous exchange trip with London colleges he wanted to visit the North of England instead and chose Chesterfield College amongst a handful of quality UK representatives following a glowing recommendation from the British branch of HABIA, as it recently won an award at the Salon International Exhibition for its health and safety practices.
Following a day of styling a selection of models alongside resident students, the Japanese interns were photographed in the College photography studio with their created styles.
Using Sheffield as a base for the project, Doncaster and Manchester will also be included in the trip.
