Stylists from Indigo Rye in Caversham are holding their heads high having made it through to the Grand Final of the L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy 2008. Sarah Munnings and Judith Hancock are now one-step away from realising a lifelong career dream; to win the title of the world’s longest running, most stylish hairdressing competition.
Sarah and Judith explain the inspiration behind their striking image: “The hair is a delicate red with copper undertones and reflects our ethos of creating beautiful, wearable hairstyles. With our clothes styling we’ve followed the emerging trend for feminine, flouncy ruffles, as seen on the catwalks of Giambattista Valli and Moschino. It’s a combination of baby-doll meets vampish showgirl.”
For Sarah and Judith it seemed like an eternity before the judges delivered their verdict. Upon hearing their name announced, the team leapt off their chairs in delight. “Ours was the last team to be announced and we’d reached the moment where our mouths were dry and the nerves were unbearable,” said salon owner Karen Kennedy. “The girls have worked so hard to get to this stage and it’s a testament to the passion of the whole team that both salons have reached the Grand Final, representing the Midlands and the Southern region.”
