A hairdressing tutor and former student of Northumberland College have made it through to the regional heat of a prestigious competition.
College tutor and salon owner of House of Marley Hairdressing in Blyth, Jan Marley, and former hairdressing apprentice Calum Hall will compete in the Wella Trend Vision competition in Edinburgh next month.
Jan’s ‘Urban Native’ theme secured her a place in the colour category, which is open to hairdressers of all ages and focuses on the best colour work.
She said: “Competition work is a fantastic way to stay on top of the game with the latest colours and techniques in the industry which I can pass on to students at the college and members of the House of Marley hairdressing team.
“I’m thrilled that we both made it through to the regional heat, especially knowing that our work was judged by a panel of leading industry experts including Nicky Clarke, Daniel Galvin and Darren Ambrose.”
Twenty-year-old Calum, who completed his Level 3 apprenticeship last year, is through to the regional heat of the young talent category, which was open to hairdressers aged 30 or under and focuses on the best overall look.
The regional heat is in Edinburgh with the national final in October in London.
