Chris Read, one of Hobb’s finest talents has made it through to the final eight of the Schwarzkopf Young Artistic Team. The final team will be touring the UK before celebrating at the British Hairdressing Awards where Chris will enjoy the fabulous show alongside the UK’s biggest hairdressing names. Chris who recently turned 19 started his career at Hobb’s salon in Bristol five years ago. With Doug Hobbs’ guidance, Chris has fine tuned his passion and vision to create trend setting styles. This has seen him beat off competition from 250 of the UK’s hottest young hair professionals. After flying through the first round, Chris along with 39 other stylists were invited to Schwarzkopf’s London Academy to present their model to judges from Cosmopolitan Magazine, Vidal Sassoon and Schwarzkopf on 16th January.
Doug Hobbs said: “We are all very excited and extremely proud of Chris. He has been with us at Hobbs since he was 14 and was recently promoted to stylist following successful styling of models’ hair at our annual fashion showcase, Hobbs Show ‘Born and Raised in Bristol.’ To have achieved a winning place on the elite Schwarzkopf Young Artistic Team is a real testament to his unique style, and confidence to be setting the trends, not following them.” The intensive touring programme will see Chris learning from some of the industries top professionals, taking part in road shows and photos shoots across 2011, before the big finale at the British Hairdressing Awards on 21st November.
