yoshiko busy on stage at hair expo / by Dani Blakeley

Yoshiko Hair had a busy weekend at Hair Expo on the weekend. Both Artistic Director Dani Blakeley and our apprentice Caroline graced the stage at Hair Expo.


Caroline who was a finalist in Hair Expo Apprentice of the Year, took to the stage for first time. On Saturday she  did the salon proud as she recreated one of the looks from her award winning collection. With Dani comparing, Caroline captivated the audience. Caroline undertook a second show on the Sunday with the other finalist in Apprentice of the Year, in front of a capacity crowd.


Dani used her vast experience of years of stage work, to compare the main stage at Hair Expo, on the Monday. She did this on behalf of the Australian Hairdressing Council, which Yoshiko Hair is a member.


Monday was the long awaited awards night, where unfortunately Caroline missed out being judged the Apprentice of the Year. Still to be one of six finalist (all from top salons) across Australia, where there are over 7000  hairdressing apprentices is a major achievement. We shall look forward to seeing Caroline on stage in the future, with many opportunities coming her way.


Well done to all the finalist. We are looking forward to when Hair Expo next year comes to Melbourne, where Yoshiko shall will have even a bigger role to play.
