REALITY TV winner Keris Weir visited a Sheffield wholesaler with a fellow hairdressing contestant where they showed off their skills.

Keris and fellow Great British Hairdresser star Helen Holt, shared backstage gossip from the show, carried out makeovers and created catwalk looks during their visit to the city.

They were visiting Adel Professional Hair and Beauty wholesalers on Roman Ridge Road, Wincobank.

The final, which saw Keris scoop the prestigious title, was broadcast on E4 on the evening of her visit to Sheffield.

During the show more than 1,000 high street hairdressers battled it out to win the coveted title and the chance to style Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls for the cover of Glamour magazine.

Glamour editor Jo Elvin was joined on the hunt for the best of British hairdressing talent by top hairstylist James Brown and model Abbey Clancy, who presented the show.

Roger Tyler, director of Adel said: “We have known Helen for about eight or nine years as she comes and teaches at our training school.

“We thought it would be nice for her to come back with Keris as they got to know each other well on the show.

“The event was very well-received. We had about 12 students here and Helen and Keris demonstrated techniques and created different looks using three different models.

“We all enjoyed the day and we are hoping they will come back again in the future.”
