Melanie Stott, Hairdressing Lecturer, said: "This show has been put together by students as part of a College project and we are pleased with the ticket sales so far. The students have worked really hard to stage the Valentine Hair Show and want to raise as much money as possible for Overgate Hospice."

All money raised from the event will be donated to the Overgate Hospice. Overgate Hospice is a charity providing specialist palliative care for the people of Calderdale living with a life limiting illness. On the evening the students will be working with Beauty students from North Halifax Skills Centre to provide a makeover for a member of the Overgate staff.
