HERE at Matt Cox we love to support our local friends in the hairdressing industry, as well as the up-and-coming-talent-of-tomorrow. So I was delighted to be invited along to guest judge the students of Herbert of Liverpool at their annual competiton last March. Along with celebrity hairdressers Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko, John Graham of Toni and Guy and Nicola Scott from L’Oreal Professionnel, we were invited to the Devonshire House Hotel on Tuesday 29th March last year to seek out the 2011 finalists!
Herbert Howe is the renowed King of Bling, notorious for his big heart and his extravagant do's are infamous! So I knew he'd put on a good show. Performers on the night were The Balloonatic, from Britain’s Got Talent, and Dance Dynamix, from Sky One’s Got To Dance.
More than 200 hairdressing students took to the competition floor to show off their talents so we all faced a very tough job. Read the list of winners in the Liverpool Echo article here.
