Blog: Ericka Kidd wins Gold at Wella TrendVision
Ericka Kidd of House of Colour won Gold for Ireland in the Young Talent Category at the TrendVision Awards 2015. Ericka had already won Silver in the Young Talent Category in 2014 but she didn’t give up and took home the Gold and a place in the International Final this year.
‘Winning the opportunity to gain hands on experience and insight from some of my hairdressing heroes is unbelievable. The whole experience was brilliant. The advice that we’ve received will help me to grow and develop not only technically, but also from a personal perspective. I can then apply these developments to both my clients in the salon and in the way I educate my team.
“The hints and tips that the mentors gave us over the course of the four days have helped me to pay closer attention to detail within my work and in turn be more of a perfectionist. I have also been inspired to try out new techniques that I wouldn’t have considered before as they’re not within my comfort zone.
“The mentors really helped us to pick out the aspects of our looks that we need to work on to make sure our entries are up to the global standard. The experience of the TrendVision Awards as a whole has been unforgettable and I would encourage anyone who is considering it to enter in 2016.”
