Staff in a Hallglen hair salon are proving they are a cut above their competitors when it comes to hair styling.

Chaplins is one of only four teams from Scotland to make the final of this year’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy.

The industry’s longest-running live hair competition in the world attracts a high standard of entries.

At last week’s Scottish final in Glasgow, teams had only 30 crucial minutes to create their fashion-inspired look under the gaze of judges.

Chaplins salon owner Rhona Fish said she was delighted her team were successful and was keeping her fingers crossed they would take the top prize at the Grand Final in London next month.

She said: “You are always confident beforehand but when you arrive at the venue and see everyone’s models you are not so sure.

“But our model looked amazing and all we could do was hope we had done enough to meet the judge’s approval.”

The winning team members were Shona Laurie (28), of Larbert, who has worked in the salon for almost 10 years, and Lauren Johnston (26), of Hallglen, who has been there for five years.

Rhona added: “People are perhaps surprised by what we’ve achieved from a salon in the middle of a housing estate but we have clients who travel from all over, including Glasgow and Edinburgh.

“When I saw the salon 11 years ago it was rundown. But I knew it had potential and I’ve built up a great team.

“I’ve a saying, that the harder your work the luckier you get and I’ve tried to follow that throughout my career.”

Chaplins also had Kylie Fullarton and Carrie Honeyman reach the regional finals in the men’s image competition.

Teams from Couper & Co and Rod Smith Hairdressing, both Falkirk, also reached the Scottish finals in both the ladies and gents categories.
