Members of the Military Wives Choir have been pampered at Petroc's Sanctuary Spa and Skin Care Centre, ahead of a performance at the Exercise Tiger Memorial.

On Sunday April 28 the choir sang three songs at the service at Slapton Sands, which marked the 70th anniversary of a tragic military exercise that went wrong, killing hundreds of American soldiers and sailors.

The group created a 40s look with their hair and makeup for the performance and Petroc's beauty students, who are currently studying photographic and themed image make-up, spent the afternoon teaching the singers how to recreate the look themselves, and also gave them manicures and pedicures during their pamper session.

"I'm really pleased with the finished look and we've had a lovely afternoon," said choir member Katherine Catchpole.

"The test now will be to recreate this look ourselves!," she added.

Lecturer Jenny Spring said: "This is the first time our students have had the opportunity to test all their newfound skills on the public.

 "Our students have completed this module as an addition to their course but, from September, we'll be offering a full time hair and media make-up diploma. So, I really hope we'll have the chance to work with the Military Wives again next year and perhaps even accompany them to performances, to do their hair and make-up at the venue," she added.
