Classy wave thrills stylist

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Pare­mata hair­dresser Jamie Thorne blew judges away with her high fash­ion blow-wave.

The Hair by the Sea ap­pren­tice brushed her way to suc­cess at the Robert Lah­man Ap­pren­tice Chal­lenge last month.

Thorne placed third in the Cur­rent Fash­ion Sa­lon Blow Wave sec­tion.

She said the win was a big sur­prise.

‘‘I didn’t think I’d get any­thing. It’s given me a lot more con­fi­dence to do more com­pe­ti­tions,’’ she said.

Owner Tracy Jones said she knew Thorne would do well in the com­pe­ti­tion. ‘‘I was very proud.’’ Thorne, 22, has worked at Hair by the Sea for 18 months.

Be­fore that she com­pleted a hair­dress­ing course at Whi­tireia Polytech­nic.

She was in­spired to go into hair­dress­ing af­ter see­ing her older step-sis­ter do it.

‘‘This is re­ally my thing now. I love it.’’

Thorne said her win­ning blow- wave was not the sort you would walk down the street with as it was more high fash­ion and avant garde.

She will com­pete in the Welling­ton re­gional com­pe­ti­tion in Au­gust.

Big win, right hair: Hair By the Sea ap­pren­tice Jamie Thorne prac­tises her blow-wave on owner Tracy Jones.
