Lo­cal hair­dresser hon­oured as na­tional fi­nal­ist

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

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.
