The Australian Colourist of the year

No, I have not won Hair Colourist of the Year, but I did interview Jacen Ward, who at the time of interview had not been crowned but is now Australian Colourist of the Year! I also interviewed 2008 Australian Hairdresser of the Year Jayne Wild. To see me interviewing and chatting to icons of our industry, go to prohairstylist. As I have said before, it's awesome to work for these guys and later in the year I'm going to UK and then New York to work for them baby! Watch this space....

Our Golden Girl

We are just about recovered from our big weekend at Expo. With winning an award, doing stage work and interviewing the best Australian talent around for prohairstylist, it was busy, busy BUSY! There is an interview I did with Kirsten Reynolds and right hand man of Kevin.MurphyDavid Glover. It was a great experience, and loads of fun to chat to the best hairdressers Australia has to offer.
Whilst I was out chatting to people the girls were onstage as a part of the O&M creative team,styling hair for a shoot that was running. I helped a little, but all credit goes to Verity Griffths and Kirsty Abbott who are some of the best in Australia, as well as some of the best for Stevie English Hair. Style Icon has just picked up some of the photos. Wohoooo go girls

The Apprentice of the Year 2009

Wow! What a day, what a week, no what a year! Dramatic- that's me. I'm sitting here at my desk a very happy and proud man. My two super star apprentices have been working around the clock to get their models on stage at the Hair Expo apprentice competition. They were both amazing and pulled off two great hair cuts in 30 mins. Its hard to do a haircut under pressure let alone with an auditorium full of people watching. The next part of the competition was the 'hair up' section where they have 15 mins to put do an elaborate upstyle.

I was so nervous for them both that it was hard to watch. Naomi is in her second year, whilst Georgie is in her third, and they were both competing against people who are more senior.
To cut a long and proud story short Georgina Stokes WON the Australian Apprentice competition! She styled it herself, choosing clothes and having makeup done to her specifications. Georgie will be going up on stage to collect her award tomorrow night.

Naomi did so well, I pushed and prodded her to go in and her finished hair up and haircut were amazing. It's lovely to have a great talented team, the assistants are often the unsung hero's of the salon, and its fantastic to see them try so hard and get awarded. Well done to both my girls!
