Burnham-On-Sea hairdresser Sarah-Louise West is celebrating after achieving top recognition in a national hairdressing competition.

Sarah travelled to London earlier this week to compete in the National Hairdressers Federation Britain’s Best of 2019 awards.

She took Laura Lismore as her model and competed in the Bridal Hair Stylist of the Year 2019 category and came away with a well-deserved highly commended award.

Sarah says it was her first attempt at entering the competition and she “couldn’t have been happier with the result.”

Sarah has been congratulated by local friends and colleagues and she is working at Mane Hairdressing Salon in Clifton.
