A CUT ABOVE: Stylists show they have the X Fac­tor

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

TWO hair­dressers from a North­wood hair salon are mak­ing their mark as stylists at the live shows of ITV’s X Fac­tor.

Se­nior style di­rec­tor Luke Ormsby, 28, and George Kat­saros, 27, from Har­ing­tons in Green Lane, North­wood, were ap­proached by X Fac­tor’s res­i­dent hair stylist Jamie Stevens to join his six-strong team.

Mr Ormsby, who lives in Har­row, said: “We are work­ing long days at the week­end styling hair for the con­tes­tants, the dancers and the band mem­bers.

“It’s hard work but it’s so ex­cit­ing to be part of the X Fac­tor team.”

He said one of the most chal­leng­ing styles to cre­ate in week one were singing sis­ters Blonde Elec­tra.

“Their hair had to be sec­tioned, plaited, wrapped into a bun and coloured with hair chalk.

“They are great girls and very open to change and new styles,” the stylist said.

Har­ing­tons salon di­rec­tor, Danny Coles said: “Luke and George are both great stylists who have a real flair for cre­at­ing amaz­ing hair­styles.

“We are very proud of them and we’re de­lighted they have been given this op­por­tu­nity. X Fac­tor’s res­i­dent stylist needed peo­ple he can trust and he knows they will do an ex­cel­lent job.”
