The local hairdressers competed against 60 salons in the live regional heat, which was held on April 5 at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.
In just 30 minutes each style-savvy team created an overall model look that captured their precise colouring techniques and reflected the Autumn / Winter 2011-12 catwalk trends. A judging panel of renowned and accomplished UK hairdressers decided who would move up the fashion ranks to the next level.
The elite panel consisted of Adam Reed, Chris Williams, Nick Malenko, Errol Douglas, Karen Dodds, Carolyn Newman and Gary France.
The local salons and colourists will now go on to compete in the grand final, which will be held Grosvenor House in London in July.
