A HAIRDRESSER has secured a place on a highly sought after professional programme.

Molly Drummond (21) of Hooker & Young hairdressers in Ponteland, has been awarded a spot on the Schwarzkopf Professional Young Artistic Team.

Following a judging day in London, where those entering were required to show their chosen cut and colour style on a model, she was chosen as one of only six people in the country for the team.

As part of the team she will get opportunities such as appearing in industry magazines, completing different training sessions throughout the year and taking part in a fashion show.

Molly said: “I entered last year and didn’t get through, so this year I was going through the same process again.

She added: “I was chuffed when I found out.”
