The family firm triumphed with first place in the regional heat of the L'Oréal Colour Trophy.
At Sisters owner, creative director and colour specialist Claire Hildreth came away from the regional competition in Leeds last night with a place in the national final, at the sixth time of asking.
From their salon on Newcastle’s Pink Lane, At Sisters are a mother/daughter trio of Margaret Emmonds, Claire Hildreth, and Joanne Emmonds who are on a mission to make sure their clients always leave their family-run salon revitalised, refreshed & totally satisfied!
L'Oréal Colour Trophy, the longest running live hairdressing competition in the world, showcases some of the brightest hairdressing talents across the country, whilst ensuring that hairdressers nationwide are continually inspired to celebrate ‘Hair Inspired by Fashion’.
The North East is always recognised as a strong category in the competition with leading salons across York, Leeds, Hull, Middlesborough, Sheffield, Durham, Darlington and Sunderland taking part.
“We’re over the moon to be putting a small family business on the map at such a high level,” said Claire, who had previously been an ID Artist for L’Oreal – training which has obviously paid off!
“It just shows hard work, determination and a never give up attitude, bouncing back from years of disappointments, is worth it to final receive the accolade of first position.”
Claire and her team, including her sister and beauty artist Joanne and local model Cait from Tyne Tees Models, will now compete in the Grand Final on 5th June in London.
