It has been an amazing year for Yazz Number One Hair Studio and 2012 represents the first year of The Face of Yazz. A modelling competition to find 2 models, one male and one female to become the proud representatives of the Yazz brand.
The journey begins. Contestants were invited to register in February. An interview and short photoshoot took place to find our 6 Finalists.
Photographs were posted on facebook and our website and voting began.
Our 6 finalists attended photoshoots, a meal at China Red Chinese, a Gym Session with personal trainer Steve, at LA Fitness in Yeadon. Their hair has been restyled and coloured by Yazz Number One Hair Studios and they have been prepped for the final catwalk show .
Our winners were chosen on 5th May 2012 at the Face of Yazz Final and Catwalk Show, held at LA Fitness, Haworth Lane, Yeadon. Four regional judges were invited along to cast their winning votes.
Michael Sutcliffe and Hannah Burnell are the winners and face an exciting year ahead. As local ambassadors for Yazz Number One hair studio, Michael and Hannah will be representing us locally, as well as attending photoshoots, exhibitions and competitions.
