Hairdresser Abbie wins student award
A TEENAGE hairdresser really is a cut above the rest after winning a special student award at her college.
Abbie Giddens, 18, has been working at It’s A Snip in Codicote for the last two years on a one-day placement, and her hard-graft has now paid off after being named Work-Based Learner Achiever of the Year at Hertford Regional College’s awards ceremony.
The Codicote resident, who completed her NVQ Level 2 hairdressing course three months early, was chosen for the accolade despite being up against around 250 fellow students at the college.
Abbie, of St Giles Road, said: “I knew that there was a chance that I could win but I didn’t think it was going to be me.
“I have loved working here and, as most of us are all living in Codicote, we’re like a little family.”
