Lake Technical College is proud to announce that our Cosmetology students competed and placed 1st
in a Celebrity Look-A-Like Team Competition at the Premiere Orlando show, an International Beauty Event. The
students who participated we’re Mia Braddock, Cassandra Corah, Sarah Glass, Kayla Herl, and Elizabeth Mangual.
The students could choose the celebrity they wanted to emulate and the celebrity could be real or imagined. They
also needed to provide costume and props to enhance the appearance of their chosen celebrity. They were given two
hours to complete the look and then a judging team that consisted of top industry professionals representing each
category of hair, nails, make-up and fashion inspected each entry for five categories: Theme Look, Creativity, and
Technique/Level of Difficulty, Presentation, and Resemblance to Chosen Celebrity.
The students chose Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter and Mia was the model. Instructor Bonnie Holcomb states,
“The students really worked together on the look. They chose Mia because of her hair color and fact she had
beautiful natural nails that could be complete the desired look. Our students were amazing and so much fun to
watch!” First prize included $500 and 4 Show Passes for Premiere Orlando 2019 (a $240 value) courtesy of
Premiere Orlando and individual price packages ($500 value) courtesy of Beauty Cast Network.
