Working her way up in the hairdressing industry and putting home town Urmston firmly on the map, Ria Kulik, top stylist at The Hairbank, is a finalist for the third time in a row in the UK Extensionist of the Year – and we’re only three months into 2015!
The competition is being held at the annual ‘Pro Hair Live’ event at Manchester Central in March. To enter, Ria had to show off her creative specialist skills by producing a ‘Parisian’ inspired photo with extensions.
With hundreds of entries from up and down the country each year, the competition comprises of two categories - Commercial Creative and Avant-Garde - that the entrees can enter to have a chance to win the ‘Extensionist’ title, along with an exclusive photo shoot in conjunction with Balmain Hair and coverage in Professional Hairdresser magazine.
Only eight entries are picked to be in the final, and Ria has become a finalist in both categories with a chance to win the title again this year. Speaking on her achievement, Ria says,
I can't believe I've been selected out of hundreds of entries for the 3rd year running. It's been an amazing year being finalists in the British Hairdressing Awards in London and representing the Northwest with my mum, Laura Kulik.
