Red is the new Black. Celebs like Rhianna and Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks certainly seem to agree. And so do the folks at L’Oreal Professional who are celebrating the launch of a new series of red shades by holding an online makeover competition. The winning hairstylist will receive exposure in Elle Magazine, among other industry prizes. By now you’re wondering why this is important? Well Competing for the gold… or red in this case… is Rain Hair Salon’s newest stylist, Vancouver’s own Katie-Rose Petley.
Katie-Rose has had an illustrious start to her career. After picking up the Overall Achievement Award at John Casablancas Institute’s Hair Art Program earlier this year, she went on to become a finalist in the Student/Apprentice category of the Contessa Awards, the ‘Canadian Hair Oscars’. This places her in the top 5 in Canada in her category, and the only representative in her category from BC. She flies to Toronto for the Contessa awards ceremony in November where the winner will be announced.
In the meantime, you have the power to help her win something else. How could the above photo not get her your vote?
