Stylish Ilkley pair audition for new BBC television series
11:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in Local news
Two stylists from an Ilkley hair studio have got through to the auditions for a BBC Three television series.
Francesca Stothers and Jodi Harrison, who work at Tiempo Hair Studio, South Hawksworth Street, competed against London salons for selection for the new series, Hair.
They had to go through various stages, answering questions, sending in pictures and videos of themselves and the hairstyles they have created, before going down to the auditions in London.
Francesca has made it through to the next round, and has since been to London again to show her hairdressing skills.
She is now down to the final 30 out of 250 that originally applied, and has already had her first live to the BBC interview and practical work.
The competition is for young hairdressers in Britain ages 16-25, who are either doing an apprenticeship or simply just have an interest in hairdressing.
The final format will be similar to BBC 2’s Great British Bake Off. The two stylists have been working at Tiempo since the business opened in June.
