Q&A with Jess Sage, Salon Manager for Reflections Whiteladies Road, on her success at reaching the regional finals of the 2018 Wella Professionals TrendVision Awards!

Congratulations on reaching the regional finals Jess, how do you feel?

Just so excited! The experience alone has been great but to make it through the regionals is an amazing feeling.

Why did you choose to enter the “Runway” category?

I have always had huge passion for Avant Guard hair since I started training, to be able to enter such a prestigious competition in something you love doing is not an opportunity to be turned down. “Runway” really allows the creative juices to flow, there are no limits and it allows you to be a hair artist not just a hairdresser.

When you were putting your look together where did you find your inspiration?

My inspiration started in a Vogue magazine, reading an article about Versace’s Spring/Summer collection. I loved how Donatella was honouring her brother’s best collections marking the 20th anniversary of his death.

What is the next stage in the process?

On 21st May I will be going to London to compete in the regional finals where my model will walk the catwalk. I have adapted my original look and will be competing against 5 other stylists for the gold award and a place in the UK Finals.

Who is your style inspiration?

Khloe Kardashian. She is always on-trend and uses gentle lightening techniques rather risking damage to her hair by trying to get there too quickly. She also varies her length to suit on-trend fashion.

Good luck for the finals Jess!

Thank you, I can’t wait! I would also like to thank my team and Senior Managers, whose support and guidance has been invaluable.
