Students at the College of West Anglia's King Lynn campus have raised £130 for a hospital appeal.
The pupils offered a two-hour hairdressing session, including hand and arm massage, for 13 clients as part of a charity fundraiser for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital's Excel Appeal.
The appeal, supported by the EDP, aims to raise £50,000 for specialist care equipment for elderly patients at the hospital.
More than £35,000 has been raised since the appeal was launched nearly 18 months ago.
Lisa Gallacher, course director for hairdressing, organised the event.
