The new face of D:fine in Haverhill has been announced as Harriet Bevan, 19, who won a competition run by the Echo to have a free makeover at the D:fine salon on Monday 8th October.
Artistic designer Kelly Rayner got to work on Harriet so she could show off a number of styles that will soon be displayed in the salon windows.
Salon owners Lynn Williamson and Michelle Wicks hope to display the results of Harriet’s makeover and photo shoot in the Good Salon Guide’s monthly magazine, having already been graded a five star business by the guide shortly after opening in 2007.
Harriet spoke of her competition win by saying,
I entered the competition because I like hair modelling and would love to get into the fashion industry and work at Vogue, so I just wanted to get started really. I haven’t thought about professional modelling but it wouldn’t be something I’d say no to. I do change my look all the time and tend to always go for a new fresh look. At the moment I’m trying to go for the Paloma Faith look as that’s what I’m really into.
Now and then I go to the salon and get a whole new look and I’m really into the vintage scene. I’ve loved the things they have been doing and it’s nice to see how they can suddenly make my look completely different. I really like the look they have done now and I’ve been watching them to get some tips for next time.
Ms Williamson said one of the reasons Harriet was chosen as the competition winner was because of her vintage appearance,
She was just very attractive and had the look we were looking for, that vintage look which is the latest fashion, Harriet will be the new face of the business. We were looking for someone who wants to get into modelling so we can have some images to go in our salon window, and then send the pictures on to the Good Salon Guide magazine.
