Hairdressing apprentices from across the state tested their skills as part of a statewide competition on Sunday.
TasTAFE hair and beauty education manager Allyson Davies said the quality of work in this year's WorldSkills Hairdressing competition had been exceptional.
"They're all apprentices from right around the state, and they've all put in a lot of time training," she said.
"They've done a marvelous job, and we're really proud of them."
Ms Davies said the competitors arrived at TasTAFE about 7.30am for an intense day of competition, which included a ladies cut and colour, men's cut, and putting hair up.
They also had to adhere to strict competition guidelines and create current styles on both models and mannequins. Competitors were judged by a panel of industry experts.
The winner of this year's competition was Hannah Adams from Hair by Martika Styles.
McKenzie Maher from Harmony Hair was runner up.
Ms Adams will compete in the national championships next year. If successful, could compete in China as part of the Australian team in 2021.
