Looking forward to the Yorkshire Salon Awards

For those of you following me on social media or these blog posts, you may well remember that I have  reached the shortlist of the Yorkshire Salon Awards in two categories. The Stylist of the Year and Colourist of the Year – I could not decide which I should enter – but as I both style and colour hair decided to have a go at both. So I was delighted to find out that I had reached the final eight in both competitions. Then the bonus came when our salon,The Color in Bridlington was also successful in being  shortlisted for the Peoples’ Choice award having been voted for by our amazing clients


I am incredibly excited that both Richard and I will be attending this event at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. I always feel so incredibly fortunate that my husband Richard is also an amazing hairdresser, and that we work together so well.  We really will make the most of this well deserved night out as we d this both have tickets for this prestigious night.


I am not going with the attitude that I will win, but am aiming to enjoy the whole experience. I also will not take any negative feelings away from the night. But I  will radiate positivity as I am extremely very proud of the stylist and colourist I have become. I truly believe I am an amazing role model to all other hairdressers in the industry, as I am going to be, 50 next year but I still love working behind the chair.  I am incredibly happy, healthy, creative, and just love sharing my knowledge and wisdom.


Also everyone that knows me, know that  I love to wear nice dresses. So if I am truly honest with you all , I am more looking forward to wearing my long evening dress  which I just love!


How lucky am I that  my husband is going to style my hair?  I know my hair will look amazing and I just hope the rest of me will do it justice.


Naturally I will be trying to trying to get some pictures for you all to see of the night and will bring you any news as fast as I can.


Love and light
