Young Stylists Prepare To Impress
Young Stylists Prepare To Impress Wella YPS 2003 Entries
New Zealand’s young stylists are being invited to showcase their flair, whether it is sleek and sexy or totally tousled, in New Zealand’s only live company run competition for the hairdressing industry’s future style leaders.
Wella YPS 2003 is designed to push and promote ‘On the Up’ hairdressers aged 22 or under.
Wella New Zealand’s national sales manager, Mike Beauchamp, says Wella YPS 2003 will help escalate the career of budding hairdressers by providing national exposure in both the hairdressing industry and consumer awareness while providing all important competition experience.
“It’s incredible for the whole industry to have the young guns competing together in one venue. They interpret current hair trends then maneuver them to add their own personality and creativity for a specific cut and colour,“ he says.
“It’s a wicked opportunity to share the experience and to cultivate and reward our immense local talent ”.
Entries for Wella YPS 2003 close on Friday, February 14 2003 with every entrant receiving a certificate, and Wella starter pack.
Twelve regional heats (Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill) will take place during March and April with each regional winner automatically gaining a place at the Wella YPS 2003 national final on Saturday June 21, 2003.
The overall Wella YPS 2003 winner, selected by a judging panel at the national final in Auckland on June 21, will receive a prize package including worldwide travel and the prestigious Wella YPS 2003 trophy and certificate.
Two ‘runners-up’, the ‘top colourist’ and ‘design showing fashion excellence’ will also be chosen at the national final.
Last year’s winner was Invercargill hairstylist Amber Brinsdon (21) from Total Image. -ends-
