Australia's best hairstylists battle it out for a place in 2018 FAME TEAM

Fame 2018 Finalists

Yesterday, fourteen of Australia’s hottest rising talent in the hairdressing industry, assembled to fight for a spot in the 2018 Australian Fame Team.

This year the competition has seen some of the best talent yet, pushing the bar even higher than previous years. Stylists were put to the challenge in creating three looks to suit each of the skill tests. The skill tests were; London Fashion Week DB X Reebok, Mama to Muse and The Red Carpet Kid.

The third skill test proved to challenge the stylists creative skills, creating a Red Carpet look for beloved Stranger Things Star, Millie Bobby Brown.

Millie’s style is edgy, fun and youthful. Keeping this in mind the stylists had to adhere to the criteria: creating a look that is age appropriate for a thirteen-year-old, understanding potential parental suggestions and lastly veering away from the punk and grunge look.

The Fame Team finalists channelled their skills to produce three flawless looks in hope to secure a spot in the last round of Fame Team finals.

In this final round of the FAME judging La Biosthetique, a sponsor since it’s inception, stepped behind the scenes to capture just what the rigorous hairdressing competition looked like.

La Biosthetique’s Marketing Manager, Karen Aubin said, “The Australian Fame team is very close to our hearts and we love being part of these stylists’ journey.  For four years now we’ve watched as those who go through FAME are privy to one-of-a-kind experiences like photoshoots and world travel. They gain exposure to top contacts in the hairdressing industry as well as personal growth that they might never even considered would be part of the package.  We’ve seen what FAME can do for a hairdresser and it’s an incredibly powerful springboard for their career; something we truly believe in and Rob and I wouldn’t miss being part of it for the world.”

We are yet to wait, in angst as the judges finalise their decisions on who will be stepping through to the next and final round.

La Biosthetique congratulates all fourteen finalists and commend each and every one on their efforts.
