I want to welcome all the contestants for taking part in this year’s Sebastian’s What’s Next Award. Winning a coveted award is a great way to make a name for yourself in this industry. The experience alone can create a buzz among industry professionals. Not to mention it’s a great way to build your creative portfolio.
Competitions are necessary and a key component to showing support, preparing and challenging the next generation of hair professionals. They’re only beneficial, though, if you enter. Don’t hold yourself back. By entering you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Competing allows you to work with the best and learn from them. You get to challenge yourself to be the best and see how your skills match up to others. Surprise yourself, push boundaries and draw on your innermost creative self. This experience will give you more confidence and improve your technical abilities.
I am honoured to be sharing this experience with you all and look forward to seeing where this journey takes us. Good luck to all of you and stay tuned for what’s next!
