International Finalist Alternative Hair Show 2017

Shelley Competing In International Finals Live On Stage At London’s Royal Albert Hall!

Shelley couldn’t have been more delighted to have received the news that for the second year running, she has been selected as a finalist in the International Visionary Awards at The Alternative Hair Show.

Hosted at London’s spectacular Royal Albert Hall, the Alternative Hair Show has become one of the most prestigious annual events in the hair industries calendar.  Shelley competed against hair artists across 50 countries in the Avant Garde competition that she has become a finalist in.

‘I can’t stop smiling.  To be a finalist two years on the run for such a prestigious and highly competitive International award is just incredible. The Royal Albert Hall fascinates me and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the competition at last year’s finals so I literally can’t wait until October. The Alternative Hair Show raises funds and awareness for a Leukaemia charity:  a cause that is very close to my heart’

Inspiration came from the Greek goddess Nephthys.  ‘Utopia’ is a god-like state of harmony and in ancient Egypt the goddess Nephthys protected the souls of the dead as they ascended to this state. This vision inspired the heavenly, yet sombre appearance of the image. The Avant Garde hairstyle incorporates the image of ancient pyramids and the nemes crown.
