WOMAN orig­i­nally from Chal­font St Peter is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter be­ing named a fi­nal­ist in a na­tional hair­dress­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Katie Allan, of Charles Wor­thing­ton, Great Queen Street, is a fi­nal­ist in the colour ex­pert cat­e­gory of the Most Wanted Awards.

She beat off stiff na­tion­wide com­pe­ti­tion to se­cure a place at the grand fi­nal on Mon­day Septem­ber 5, tak­ing place at the his­toric Lon­don Guild­hall and hosted by co­me­dian Rob Beck­ett.

Judged by in­flu­en­tial names in hair, fash­ion, busi­ness and the me­dia – in­clud­ing Chanel’s cat­walk hair­dresser Sam McKnight, celebrity stylist An­drew Bar­ton, Vogue beauty edi­tor Lau­ren Mur­dochSmith and the founders of Beau­tyMART, Mil­lie Ken­dall MBE and An­naMarie Solowij – the Most Wanted Awards cel­e­brate the out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als, teams and sa­lons that make Bri­tish hair­dress­ing the best in the world.

Pre­sented by lead­ing in­dus­try mag­a­zine Cre­ative HEAD, the Most Wanted Awards com­prise 12 dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories, each recog­nis­ing ex­cel­lence across a mul­ti­tude of dis­ci­plines, from busi­ness acu­men and cus­tomer ser­vice to cre­ative skill and tech­ni­cal abil­ity.

When the win­ners are an­nounced they will each be given the hair­dress­ing in­dus­try’s great­est seal of ap­proval – a Most Wanted Tro­phy.

But they will also en­joy an ex­clu­sive prize cour­tesy of their cat­e­gory spon­sor and re­ceive pro­file­boost­ing editorial cov­er­age in Cre­ative HEAD mag­a­zine and its as­so­ci­ated ti­tles and web­sites, re­sult­ing in global ex­po­sure that will see their pro­file pro­pelled into the spot­light.

Cather­ine Hand­cock, pub­lisher of Cre­ative HEAD, said: “Record en­tries to this year’s Most Wanted means these will be our most fiercely con­tested tro­phies ever. To have made the fi­nals is an amaz­ing achieve­ment – some­thing that marks you out as an ex­cep­tional ta­lent.”
