Congratulations to Amy Cartmell from London, ON., on her first-place win in the “So You Think You Can Style?” Bridal Hair photo contest.
Cartmell, who has worked in the industry for 10 years, says her specialty is bridal hair.
“I was inspired to create a look that would be romantic and ethereal,” says Cartmell.
“To create this look, I did a full set of highlights and toner, then placed in a full set of extensions to add more volume.”
“I used Schwarzkopf’s Big and Sexy dry shampoo and Dust-It to add texture before curling with a wand and doing a full loose braid. To finish it off, I used a firm hold finishing spray,” explains Cartmell.
“I love using products that can add texture and hold without having to layer too many.”
Cartmell explains that competing is important to her because it keeps her learning. “I love seeing the work done by other amazing stylists and I feel that it keeps me fresh.”
Congratulations also goes out to our second and third place winners, Aubrey Bonnah-Vink and Ian Hearth.
