Hannah is a cut above the rest

A BROMSGROVE hair stylist is proving a cut above the rest after making it to the finals of the Student of the Year Award.
Hannah-Lee Pledger from George Davis Hairdressing on St John Street is one of just 16 from thousands to be selected to go through to the final of the competition, organised by the Hairdressing Council UK.
The 21-year-old had to submit a photograph of her entry, an innovative cut.
For the final, held on October 13 at L'Oréal in Hammersmith, she will have to recreate the image before the winners are announced live on stage at Salon International.
“When I found out I had made it to the final I was really surprised,” she said.
“I wouldn’t say I’m nervous about the final, at least not at the moment. I’m excited and really looking forward to it.
“Everyone else is quietly confident so we’ll just see what happens. Everyone has been so supportive.”
Salon owner George Davis added: “This is great news for Hannah, great news for the salon and great news for Bromsgrove.
“It will be massive for us if she wins. I think it’s been a real team effort and Hannah has learned from everyone here.
“We’re all incredibly proud of her.”
A spokesman from the Hairdressing Council UK said that the standard of entries was extremely high and the judges faced a very difficult task.
