What a fabulous achievement for these two talented South African hairstylists!

Cindy Gorman and Carey Partridge from Carlton Hair have both won through to the Top 20 finalists of the Davines World Wide Hair Tour 2018. With 150 entries received this year from all over the world, having two hairdressers win through to the finals is a true reflection of their skill and expertise, and a great achievement for South African hairdressing!

Cindy and Carey will be appearing on stage at the three-day final event in Parma, Italy, from 25-29 May where the winner will be announced. This event is an amazing celebration of creativity and talent, photography and stage performance, where creative hairdressers come together and collaborate on trends and ideas.
