Kirstie Bowdin and Natalie Garcia Sanz are two of just 36 hairdressers from across the UK and Ireland to make the finals of the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2014.
The annual competition received more than 900 entries, and, following the regional heats in Manchester last week, Kirstie and Natalie won their individual categories -Young Talent and Colour – to reach the finals.

The Young Talent Category is open to stylists under 30 years old to showcase their styling, technical and finishing skills, whilst the Colour Category gives colourists of any age the opportunity to express their creativity and put their colouring skills to the test.
