SHEFFIELD hairdresser Jane Gay is taking a short cut to the top after excelling in a national competition.
The 42-year-old, of Herries Road, who works at The Avenue, Glossop Road, was runner-up in the colour competition category of the La Biosthétique UK Beauty Stylist Awards.
Jane’s two-tone caramel coloured model was one of 31 UK photographic entries, judged by an independent panel of specialist hair trade journalists and industry professionals.
Entries had to embrace a total look – cut, colour, make-up and clothes styling to capture the mood of the moment.
Jane said: “I just couldn’t believe it when my name was announced as runner-up.
“With so many skilful entries, it came as a huge surprise that my look was chosen as a winner. I’m absolutely thrilled.”
