A Ringwood stylist from Francesco Group is celebrating after being announced as Salon Stylist of the Year at the British Hairdressing Business Awards held at London’s Park Plaza.
Amy Sultan, who began her hairdressing career at the age of 13, created a detailed entry, which not only took the judges through her journey into hairdressing, but also highlighted her attributes and achievements throughout her career so far.
Mia Dellicompagni, Francesco Group’s director of hairdressing said, “The entry was then submitted to the awards panel, which consisted of some of hairdressings biggest names, and was judged purely on the information and evidence provided. After being shortlisted, Amy was invited to London to take part in an intense interview process, whereby three of hairdressings most respected names, chatted with her to find out that little bit more about her and her career – something which Amy enjoyed and very much excelled in her interview.”
Mia explained that one of the judges stated: ‘Amy’s entry was absolutely fantastic. To see how far she has come throughout her time in the hairdressing industry is truly admirable and something she should be extremely proud of. Within the interview process, Amy held herself so well and came over very professional. It is fantastic to see such an incredible stylist progress through the hairdressing ranks.’
However, for Amy this is just the beginning. Along with Mia Dellicompagni, she has finalised for Wales and South West Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards, otherwise known as the ‘Oscars of British Hairdressing’. The duo had to submit a collection of four images, which was judged by hairdressing biggest names and having been chosen as part of the top six in their region, they have now submitted a further four images to create a collection of eight, with the winners being announced at the annual black tie event, taking place in November at London’s Grosvenor House.
“Finalising for the British Hairdressing Awards is unbelievable and something we are so incredibly proud of. To be recognised as one of six leading stylists in your region is amazing and we are ecstatic. Roll on November!’ exclaimed Amy and Mia.
Amy is leading the way for the younger generation of Francesco Group stylists having also won the bronze medal for Creative Vision at last year’s Wella Trend Vision Awards.
