So this happened... recently Bridgette's been on fire at Windsor. She's jumped out of the shadows in the last couple of months to firstly finish her apprenticeship, then smash out a third at the Hair Expo Cutting Championships and now this!
Bridgette has been selected as one of the five national finalists in the Shu Eemura Muse Image Awards. She now goes onto the next round of judging here in Melbourne which includes a two day photoshoot where she'll recreate her look on set.
All of a sudden this young career has exploded! We can't wait to see what our latest Star will achieve next.
Finalists in the inaugural Shu Uemura MUSE IMAGE Awards have been announced, with five stylists in with a chance to win the big prize for 2016.
Entrants were tasked with creating an image based on a ‘Tokyo Vibe’ aesthetic with a supply of Shu Uemura Art of Hair products. The entry process required a mood board explaining the concept behind the look, and a before and after shot of each applicant’s model. The finalists were judged by the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Australia team on both their technical prowess and artistic ingenuity, in a competition that acts as a platform for all hairdressers to push themselves creatively.
These five finalists will now be flown to Melbourne to take part in an all-expenses paid professional MUSE Gallery photo shoot to recreate their winning look, before a winner is announced in Melbourne next month. Prizes include a full year’s supply of Shu Uemura Art of Hair products, an artwork of their winning look and editorial exposure, including a ten page professional shoot with the competition’s trade media partner INSTYLE and a profile in INSTYLE and on Styleicons.
“We were overwhelmed by the number of our partner salons who entered,” said Sandra Kelly, General Manager of Shu Uemura Art of Hair Australia. “The level of talent that was on display was truly incredible. I’d like to extend a big congratulations to the finalists and we will look forward to celebrating with you at the Muse Image Awards Finals Party in August!”
