first_imgWhat a line-up on the night.Couture hair came alive in the North West with a stunning display at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing. What started as an in-house Couture Competition between apprentices and junior stylists, turned into an evening filled with talent and creativity resulting in six stunning styles, each of them worthy winners in anyone’s eyes!This is a new direction within the industry in the North West to create an in-house competition that allows up and coming hairdressers to become more avant garde to express themselves in their work that otherwise would not be created on an everyday basis for clients. Preparations began over the past few months as the apprentices and junior stylists were given their brief from the event organiser and artistic team director Elaine McKean. Their brief was “be as creative as you want, choose a theme and go with it but please note that everything you use must be recycled or handmade”.From the creativity on display last night it is evident that the brief was fully embraced. Family, friends and judges Glow & Go’s Aoibheann Walsh and Local Artist and Fashion blogger Zara Mcdaid and Patrick Gildea were treated to stunning creations as the models strutted down the runway.PoleStarFirst up was Polestar, a creation by Megan Callaghan, visually stunning with the theme executed perfectly. Inspired by the Polestar roundabout in Letterkenny, Megan crafted the hair into a boat shape and carried her theme through to the handmade clothing which represented the steel in boats. Miss NatureNext up was Miss Nature, created by Irene Meehan, another beautiful execution which brought light to the competition. Being a nature lover Irene wanted to portray the seasons in her creation, while injecting colour and warmth through the use of flowers, butterflies and birds, the end result was gorgeous.Sasha FierceModel 3 was Sasha Fierce a stunning creation from Roisin Coyle. Roisin wanted to step out of her comfort zone and portray an alter ego look that was edgy and unique. From the wonderful hair creation to the styling of a newspaper ruffled dress, the whole look was flawless.Spring QueenNext up was Spring Queen, beautifully executed by Eimear Whoriskey. Eimear really wanted to brighten things up with her theme. She loves being creative and wanted to step out of her comfort zone by creating an unpolished up-style. Her fishtail plait and styling brought youthfulness to her overall look.SplashModel 5 was Splash, inspired by Daryl Hannah’s 80’s film. The theme was beautifully executed by Jen McCormack, with every small detail accounted for. Jen has a love for the beach and outdoors so felt that this theme suited her perfectly. The finished look all handmade from shells, fishing net and fabric certainly captured the imagination the audience as the beautiful mermaid glided down the runway.The Mad HatterLast up was The Mad Hatter, beautifully executed by Rachel Ferguson. The handmade hat, the hair, the styling and the make-up were all visually stunning within a theme that was perfectly executed from head to toe. Rachel moulded the hat from wire and carefully crafted the hair around it; the simple monochrome styling and make-up finished the look. The theme was unmistakable and the hat was the stand out piece, a stunning creation that deservedly earned 1st place from the judges.Commenting on the night judge fashion blogger Zara McDaid said“”I was blown away by the level of creativity and skill that the team put into their creations. It was evident from their mood boards and designs that they had thoroughly researched their chosen themes and the outcomes were stunning. It was extremely hard to choose a winner on the night as they were all so unique! I was delighted to be asked to judge, it was a very inspiring event, I really enjoyed it.” Judge from Glow & Go Aoibhean Walsh also thoroughly enjoyed the night and said “ having worked closely with the Patrick Gildea Team over the past number of months I was fully aware of their exceptional talent, but I can honestly say that I was absolutely blown away by the talent, creativity and professionalism that I witnessed here this evening. Choosing our top three Splash; Polestar and our winner the Mad Hatter was extremely difficult as each look was so unique in its own right, I loved being involved and was delighted that I was asked to take part”.Overall the night was a resounding success with an amazing showcase of local talent and creativity. Patrick, compere and judge, commented on the night’s success “when people open up and express themselves Couture Hair comes alive in the North West”.The judges with the winning model and stylist Rachel FergusonCREATIVE COUTURE HAIR TAKES PATRICK GILDEA HAIRDRESSING BY STORM was last modified: February 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Patrick Gildea Hairdressinglast_img read more
