|Clipso Young Superstars 2010 Competition Finals|
Education is an area that the Clipso group directors take very seriously and it’s the younger generation of upcoming talented hairdressers who are recognised as the continued future success of the Clipso group. Each year, the Clipso Young Superstars awards pit Clipso and Addiction salon trainees against one another.
Organised by Emma Basset, assistant manager at Clipso Watford, and compered by Watford’s Kim Rance and London’s Jack Lawrence, the audience were kept enthralled with the impressive talents of Clipso trainees from first to third year level each presenting a ‘complete look’ model and with the second and third years each giving a two minute presentation to explain their concept, technique and over all look.
The judging for the 2010 competition was undertaken by award winning Jo O’Neill, International Technical Director for Toni & Guy; multiple award winning and television hairdresser Jamie Stevens, multi-award salon owner Tim Avery from Toni & Guy, and Clipso’s own PR, Samantha Grocutt from Essence PR.
Categorising the competition into NVQ Level 1, 2 and 3, each winner was presented with a certificate, gift vouchers for Selfridges and goody bags. The men’s winner won a L’Oreal Professionnel men’s cutting course, the Moodboard winner won a L’Oreal artistic course, and the overall winner won a trip to Barcelona for the L’Oreal Exposure tour.
The winners included:
First Year winner – Becci Hill, Clipso Watford
