Award winning hairdressing academy JET, with centres in Basildon & Chelmsford,  recently held their annual competition at The Halfway House, Brentwood.

Following several heats, the 30 finalist hairdressing and barbering Apprentices from salons across Essex, had to reproduce their final ‘total’ look in front of over 250 salon owners, family and friends.  Now in its sixteenth year the competition theme was “Best of British”.   In just 60 minutes the talented young people competed to produce a winning look based on their inspiration mood boards and an interview and presentation to the judges.

Claire Turner from Tinted (formerly International Colour Director for HOB salons), Jim Shaw owner of Essensuals in Billericay, and Martyn Holmes from Channel 5* Extreme Hair Wars and Strangeways salon in Leigh-on-sea had the unenviable task of making the decision, when interviewed said “the standard gets higher and higher every year”, making it harder and harder to judge.

Luckily The People’s Choice Award coincided with the judges’ choice (all salon owners present had a vote for this award).

The winners were Shelby-Chase Martin from Blu Nuvo (first), Phoebe Cadey from Rumour Hair(second) and Jodie Smith from Heads you Win (third).

A presentation from Claire Turner at Tinted was followed by JET’s annual awards ceremony where merit awards and the very prestigious Student of the Year Award were announced.

The winner this year Level 2 and Barbering Student of the Year was Shelby – Chase Martin from Blu Nuvo and Winer of Level 3 Student of the year was April Mash from Strangeways
