On the 23 February 2012 Christian Wiles Hairdressing Salon in Northampton celebrated their first annual face of 2012, sponsored by MATRIX and CLOUD 9. This competition was created to find a ‘NEW FACE’ for Christian Wiles branding and advertising.
With over 100 entries Christian (who was aided by photographer Paul Michael Hughes) had the task of narrowing the entries down to just 10 finalists. The finalists then showcased this seasons latest collections to a panel of industry professionals including Sharon Mayhew (Cloud 9) Nicola Chamberlin(regional educator for MATRIX UK and Ireland) Charlotte Atkinson (professional model), Kate Ward (MAC make-up artist) and Zoe Poole(former face of Christian Wiles hair).
The event took place in the beautifully decadent club Borjia, Castillian Street Northampton and was hosted by the charismatic Jonny Benarr, who compared the evening to invited guests. As the finalists strutted down the catwalk Cloud 8, Ossie and Wolf & Gypsy Vintage provided the latest trends for the affair, and two faces were crowned as this year’s FACE OF 2012.
The evening was a tribute to the on going fusion of fashion and beauty that Christian Wiles Hairdressing emulates. The two winners, Clementine and Christy-Anne, will now front all the hair campaigns for the upcoming year.
We would like to give a special thank you to all who were involved especially the talented Matthew Gavin & Harry Nichola who created all the beautiful hair with the help of the Christian Wiles Team at our hair salon in Northampton.
