Nine Faust Cosmetology student teams from Storm Lake and Spirit Lake showed off their talent during the school's "Kings and Queens: Fantasy Royal Wedding" event this week.

Teams of three had only one hour to complete their models' hair, nails and makeup before judging. The contest was held in preparation for Cosmetologists and Barbers of Iowa's Mane Event Feb. 10 in Altoona, where cosmetology students across the state can compete for cash prizes.

"The kids really enjoyed this event," said Marge Rydberg, Faust Storm Lake Campus Director. "They really found it exciting, doing something different within a fantasy idea, which allows them to use their creativity."

In 2012, 56 teams took part in the Mane Event, but a Faust student team snagged first place. The year before, Faust teams received a clean sweep of first, second and third places.

"We have been placing very high in the event," Rydberg said, noting students have been receiving top awards at least seven years in a row at the state event.

At the prepatory competition Monday, "Arabic Bride," created by Storm Lake students Kirsten Adams, Sarah Tjaden and Bessy Acebedo, with model Yasmin Santizo, took first place. "Elizabeth Taylor," styled by Storm Lake students Jamie Clark, Jill Cougill and Angela Kreger, with model Madison Peck, took second, while "Ice Bride," fashioned by Spirit Lake students Brittany Tungland, Jordyn Caquelin and Destiny Osberg, with model Carley Jensen, took third.

Other participants include "Mexican Fantasia," modeled by Xochitl Montano and styled by Angie Johnson, Katina Johnson and Diana Bensch (Storm Lake); "Princess Jasmine," modeled by Biviana Parra and styled by Tiffany Peters, Maria Vargas and Eva Jefferson (Storm Lake); "Princess of China," modeled by Mally Sangpanjun and styled by Ann Yang and Melissa Sangpanjun (Storm Lake); "Briar Rose," modeled by Alysa Klein and styled by Rachel Nappe, Jenna De Jager and Shelby Ferguson (Spirit Lake); "Royal Ball and Chain," modeled by Tiffany Lanham and styled by Haley Wallin, Chelsea Musgjerd and Brittany Provo (Spirit Lake) and "40s," modeled by Lauren Steffens and styled by Brittany Hernandez (Spirit Lake).
