The BIBA Academy staff were all smiles when we welcomed Shar Sutherland Todd (Sutherland Todd Hairdressing, NZ), Tom Donato (Xiang Hair), Charlene Fernandez (Rokk Ebony), Elizabeth Tedesco (True Colours) and Michelle Anthony (John Anthony Salon) to the Fitzroy campus. The team couldn’t help but beam over the calibre of the industry leaders that our Creative Director Lyndal Salmon had assembled to judge the inaugural BIBA Next Level Hair Competition.
The rules of our competition were simple: be creative. Challenge your audience. Do an amazing cut, colour and finish but pay attention to the total look of your model, too. Our entrants were stylists from BIBA Salons and Fleet St Barbers locations across Melbourne, plus staff and students from BIBA Academy, too. There were five categories and the winner of each received a expenses-paid trip to London to undertake training at Sassoon Academy.
