Hairdressing salon has the edge
THE Edge Hair Salon in Byron Bay showed that it really does have the edge when it scooped the pool at the recent International Hairdressing Society (IHS) regional finals at Port Macquarie.
The salon won six awards, including first and second place in ladies junior cutting; first and second place on ladies colour; third in men’s cutting and first in men’s catwalk where salon models are judged on hair and clothing.
Edge owner Tracey Parish said the awards were fantastic, but it had been a huge day.
“My staff prepared for the awards for two weeks and then on the day we were up at 3am doing all the models’ hair, before we drove to Port Macquarie,” Tracey said.
“We then left Port at 6pm and got home about midnight.
“But the trip was well worth it and I am so proud of the girls.”
Salons from Newcastle to Byron Bay competed in the awards and it was the first time that the Edge Salon had entered.
“My junior hairdressers, Mary Eckert and Amber Robinson, worked hard to win the awards,” Tracey said.
“It’s great recognition for them and it shows that we are on the right track.
“I would like to thank my senior staff for being such great role models for the juniors.
“There’s a great buzz in the salon now.”
