Step Up and Shine Winner 2017

11 July 2017

After winning Step Up & SHINE in May, Evie has now officially begun her year-long educational journey. As part of the scholarship, Evie and renowned hairdressing educator, Debbie G, spent an inspirational day together where they outlined a wish list of courses that Evie hopes to take throughout the process.

First on Evie’s list is a GHD Styler Session she has been booked to attend on 11 July 2017, where she will explore the product range and learn trend-led techniques.

In addition to the variety of colour, hair up and men’s cutting courses on Evie’s wish list, the passionate young hairdresser will also learn from the best as she takes the stage with her mentor in October at Salon International to assist Debbie with creating a look.

The talented stylist commented: “ It was amazing to spend the day with Debbie to discuss and plan my diary for this year. I'm hoping to attend a variety of courses that will help me grow my skillset, and can’t wait to start with the GHD seminar. Having the opportunity to attend Salon International this year will be also fantastic –it’s going to be a great year!”
