Houston Southeast Cosmetology Students Hold Their Own "Top Model" Competition Contributed by Andrea Green, Campus Librarian Flat irons, hair spray, and make-up took center stage as the students in our Cosmetology II classes at our Campus in Webster, Texas, held their first-ever "America's Next Top Model" competition on May 20, 2011. Under the supervision of Cosmetology instructors Heliana Kiessling, Beverly Norton, and Kimberly Parker, this event gave our students at the Houston Southeast Campus a great chance to gain some hands-on practice in styling hair, applying make-up, and modeling. Cosmetology School Students Challenge Each Other Students from all three Cosmetology II classes readied their fellow student-models with a variety of looks. Each student had one hour to complete the work on their models. When everyone was ready, they held a mini-fashion show in the breakroom, where the judging by Director of Education Robert Mauk took place. First place and the title of "Top Model" went to student and model Brittany Johnson. Beauty School Transformations Cosmetology student Amber Lucas said, "My favorite part of the contest was seeing the transformation from a student to a model look. I love seeing a picture and matching the look. I would love for our Cosmetology Program to do this more frequently. We got a feel for the modeling world, smelling hair spray, smelling the flat irons, make-up everywhere. It was the bomb!"
