Local hairdresser honoured as national finalist
JACK Horton of boutique hair and beauty salon Adam & Eve was listed as a national finalist at the prestigious Wella Trend Vision 2013 competition last week.
Mr Horton is the salon director and said he was happy to receive recognition for his first entry into the higher colour category.
“I wasn’t expecting it and to be a finalist when going up against other industry icons is a great achievement,” he said.
The idea of the competition was to create a look based on one of the four Wella ‘Sound of Colour’ trends of Fusion, Allegra, Echo and Decibel by interpreting the emotion or inspiration stylists’ feel from sound.
“My trend inspiration was Fusion so my look was based on a culture clash between eastern and western cultures with very oriental geisha styling, a more westernised approach to colouring and a big use of pastel tones,” he said.
Mr Horton moved from Brisbane to the Whitsundays and opened the Cannonvale salon in June this year.
He encourages women to step outside the box when it comes to creating a new hairstyle.
“Playing with different tones of pastel against stronger more intense vibrant colours is one of the biggest trends this is season and it looks great,” he said.
Mr Horton is now looking forward to the National Finals where a winner will be selected to represent Australia at Wella Trend Vision World Competition against 75 different countries in May next year.
Mr Horton thanked hairdressing assistant Rachelle Barrett, Iconic Bride Photography and Kim Marcel Art of Couture for their valuable support and contribution to the competition.
He was also a national finalist in the Wella Trend Vision Young Talent category last year.
