Tikadi Stylists Secure Finalist Positions for ...
Local hairdressing rising stars Lana Lewington, 21 years old, will be joined by colleague Jina Newman, 23 years old, who is a stylist at Tikadi Theydon Bois, will take part in the Schwarzkopf Young Artistic Team final at the Schwarzkopf Hairdressing Academy at Seymour Place, Central London in the New Year.
The Schwarzkopf Professional Young Artistic Team (YAT) has been exposing and mentoring young talent from top salons in the UK for over a decade. This initiative provides under 25 year old stylists with career enhancing opportunities from fashion week shows, to beauty shoots and meeting and learning from hairdressing heroes and industry greats. The final successful six applicants each year are immersed into 12 months of experiences with the purpose of helping them to achieve their goals as aspiring stars.
The application process begins with the applicant preparing a statement of trends for 2016 on hair, and fashion trends forecast as well as popular culture. There are 35 finalists selected out of over 100 entries.
All finalists are required to present a model while being given a platform to explain their technique and trend explanation to an elite panel of industry figures.
Lana said ‘It was fantastic news to learn and I’m really excited to be in the final’ while Jina commented ‘There’s lots of work to do before the final in January!’
Tikadi is a multi award winning salon group in Essex with locations at Theydon Bois and Chipping Ongar. In 2010 Hannah Skinner at Theydon Bois won a place in the YAT team.
