Hair Awards

The Tribune (NZ) - - FRONT PAGE -

Tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence com­bined with beau­ti­ful hair and fash­ion proved to be a win­ning com­bi­na­tion at the Manawatu Re­gional Hair­dresser of the Year Awards 2015 held in the Silks Lounge on Sun­day, June 28.

Manawatu As­so­ci­a­tion of Reg­is­tered Hair­dressers pres­i­dent Jayne Berg­er­son said the com­pe­ti­tion day was highly suc­cess­ful.

‘‘En­try num­bers were a lit­tle lower than we have had in pre­vi­ous years, but the work was of a very high stan­dard.

‘‘Hair­dress­ing in Manawatu is very strong so we tend to be very hard on our­selves and when our hair­dressers com­pete they tend to do well.’’

A con­tribut­ing fac­tor to the lower num­ber of com­peti­tors was the slight down­turn in hair­dress­ing ap­pren­tice num­bers.

Jayne says some def­i­nite trends emerged from the com­pe­ti­tion.

‘‘There was a strong fo­cus on tech­nique, ex­cel­lence and a re­turn to beau­ti­ful hair. The work re­ally em­braced ev­ery­thing about the in­dus­try and show­cased all the skills of it. It wasn’t just about the hair­style, it was a real en­hance­ment of fash­ion and fea­tures.’’

Jayne says the com­pe­ti­tion ‘‘was def­i­nitely back to the way things were with beau­ti­ful hair, cre­ative colours and tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence’’.

Com­pe­ti­tions are seen as vi­tal in main­tain­ing stan­dards in the in­dus­try and keep­ing up with trends.
