A WESTON hairdresser has been short-listed for a prestigious regional award.
Steven Smart, of Smart Est 73 Salon in the Boulevard, is one of the six finalists for the South West and Wales Hairdresser of the Year Award in Hairdressing Journal’s 2011 British Hairdressing Awards.
The awards, launched in 1984 by Hairdressers Journal International and sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, have celebrated and rewarded the best of British hairdressing creativity for 27 years and are renowned internationally as the ‘Oscars’ of the hairdressing world.
To enter the competition, hairdressers working in salons throughout the United Kingdom have to submit four images, which fulfil the criteria.
Steve will have to wait until November 28 to find out if he will take home the award from a glittering ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
He said: “This year has been an incredible one for the salon.
“To be recognised by your peers as being one of the country’s leading hairdressers and being involved in the British Hairdressing Awards is both a wonderful feeling and a great achievement.”
