Junior John Carne Competition

December 4, 2009

Kevin Thomas, the Salon Manager of John Carne Hairdressing in Wimbledon here. We as a salon pride ourselves in encouraging growth and talent within the industry. Therefore we set a Junior John Carne Competition to give up & coming young stylists a chance to highlight their skills. The junior stylists were challenged to create a mood board stating the hairstyle whilst touching on the inspiration of the look.

The entrants all set themselves very high standards as they did an amazing job and I was thoroughly impressed with the talent within the salon.

The evening kicked off after hours and was full of fun whilst everyone was excited to see what our juniors had to offer! The juniors had a lot of pressure on their shoulders but rose to the challenge. The junior stylists worked their magic on the models whilst presenting their mood board to me, whilst the models paraded around the salon in a runway style to music chosen by the stylists to incorporate the theme and vibe of their chosen style. The stylists then discussed the look they had achieved alongside where they’d taken inspiration from for the look.

I’m thrilled to announce the results:

1st Place: Jade Roberts (pictured left) who won a Schwarzkopf Professional Hairdressing Kit and Bag

2nd Place: Victoria Evangelista won a bottle of perfume

3rd Place: Sarah Hilsum-White received a bottle of champagne

4th Place – Bethany Figgins was given a bottle of vodka

The team all did a fantastic job – I think the pictures speak for themselves!
