Successes in the hair industry for New Zealand’s new talent in L’Oréal Professionnel’s Talent Spotting competition


THE INAUGURAL L’Oréal Talent Spotting competition in New Zealand saw Tammy Ung, from Klone Hair in Dunedin, take home the top prize.
   Ung was crowned New Zealand Young Stylist of the Year at the national final.
   Tammy also won the National Trend Award, where the judges sought a “look for tomorrow”.
   International judge Jonny Engström of Guy Krémer said of Ung’s bob cut, ‘The style Tammy created was a new twist on the bob hairstyle with a lot of overlapping layers.
   ‘I am very impressed with the level of work produced by these young New Zealand stylists. They could easily compete on the international stage.’
   Meanwhile, Nikita Barter, Sophie Hopkins and Sam Sua of Spectra Hair & Body in Palmerston North were named the New Zealand Young Team of the Year. Vanessa Sequeiros-Santana from Servilles Newmarket won the National Editorial Award: her entry best integrated hair, fashion, make-up and photographic direction.
   L’Oréal Professionnel general manager Anya Haarhoff says the event was highly successful with strong support from the hair industry.


An interview with Tammy Ung appears in issue 24 of Lucire.
