OSCAR COELLO, a hairdresser from Fuengirola, has won a national contest organised by Sebastian hair products.
The man, who is owner of the CoelloCasado salon, saw off around fifty other contenders to win the opportunity to become part of the Sebastian’s national artistic team for the next year.
Coello, who is from Cadiz but trained in London, commented, “our salon is directly focused on fashion. We don’t just cut your hair here, we provide an integral treatment,” adding, “that’s exactly what I’ll be doing for the next twelve months, which I really like.”
The contest, which is in its first year, saw entrants from all over Spain compete for the prize. Only ten made it through to the grand final in Madrid, in which the finalists used metallic elements in their hair designs.
More than three hundred hairdressers attended the event in which a jury made up of Sebastian’s artistic team judged the finalists’ work. Lourdes Marroqui, director of the brand’s education section, said the competition had been “spectacular.”
