A college in Cheshire has launched a beauty course to teach teenagers how to achieve the bronzed limbs, backcombed tresses and enhanced eyelashes of a footballer's WAG.
The course at West Cheshire College in Ellesmere Port will be teaching girls aged 16 and over how to get adept at wearing false eyelashes, fake tan and clip-on hair extensions, the Daily Mail reported.
The course will also teach students how to apply "perfect" and "fashionable" make-up, and accomplish "that perfectly groomed look of big, bouncy hair."
Programme leader Karen Bennison said girls who admire pictures of WAGs in magazines and watch British TV show 'The Only Way Is Essex' wanted to achieve the same "hyper-feminine" look as Wayne Rooney'a wife Colleen or 'TOWIE' star Chloe Sims.
"When we were looking for ideas for commercial courses the teaching staff all agreed that all the girls come in wanting to look like WAGs and have big hair, false eyelashes and full-on make-up," she said.
"They read glossy magazines, watch The Only Way Is Essex and Desperate Scousewives and want to achieve that same hyper-feminine look.
"So my colleagues and I agreed we should run a course to help them recreate it at home," she said.
Bennison said that the course aimed to teach girls how to emulate the WAG look elegantly and was not just about "churning out clones."
"Many of the real-life WAGs are actually very sophisticated and that's the message we're trying to communicate here - that there's nothing wrong with being glamorous, but that it can be done with class and style," she said.
"We will show them how to apply false tan, fake eyelashes, clip-on hair extensions and make-up, and the techniques involved in achieving that celebrity look.
"But it's not about churning out clones or encouraging the girls to become a parody of themselves. We want them to feel confident, elegant and self-assured," she added.
