A Sleaford hairdresser is vying for a national honour as part of the world’s longest-running live hairdressing contest.

The first round saw hundreds of photographic entries being judged by top industry names for a spot in the semi-final.

Amy said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw my name and still can’t, it’s such a great opportunity and I’m so grateful. I’m thankful to be surrounded by a fantastic team and network, who continuously support me.”

The semi-final – due to take place in Liverpool on April 2 – will see competitors challenged to create a live model of their colour work. They will have just 30 minutes to style their model in front of the judges and be interviewed about their final look.
