A Leyland hair colourist is a UK finalist in one of the biggest hairdressing competitions in the world.

Talented Georgina Halpin, from Heaven on Earth, Hough Lane, Leyland, is competing in the Goldwell Color Zoom Challenge 2014.

The competition, led by professional colour brand Goldwell, invites colourists from all over the UK to interpret a key trend world.

This year’s trend is ‘REALLUSION, a world full of surprises’, using optical illusions to reveal hidden secrets.

Entrants used Goldwell colour products to create their look and demonstrate their individual interpretations.

Hundreds of photographic entries were whittled down to just five finalists in each


The entries were judged by leading industry names, including hair icon Beverly C MBE, renowned colourist Karine Jackson and key press.

Georgina, whose inspired image really impressed the judges and was deemed a very strong entry, said: “I’m delighted to have got this far in the Color Zoom challenge; it’s great for my talent to be recognised at this level.

“I’m so proud, and looking forward to the next stage of the competition where I find out if I’m a UK winner.”

The UK winners will be announced at a glittering party in central London on July 28.

If Georgina is named a UK winner she will travel to the international finals in Berlin.
