A talented stylist at award-winning Harrogate salon Joseph Ferraro Hair has picked up her own hairdressing gold!
Rita Tuska, 32, has been awarded one of the highest hairdressing accolades in the UK and Ireland after winning UK GOLD in the CREATIVE VISION Category at the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK.
Rita, who works at Joseph Ferraro Hair, which has salons in Leeds Road and Cheltenham Crescent, Harrogate, competed against hundreds of hairdressers earlier in the year to secure her place in the national UK and Ireand finals, held at London’s Roundhouse this month.
Rita beat off tough competition from 19 of the country’s most talented hairdressers to take home the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award 2017 UK GOLD in the CREATIVE VISION category.
She now goes on to represent the UK at the international TrendVision Award in London next month, as well as winning a place in a mentoring programme learning from some of the hair industry’s greatest talents, including Bruno Marc, Robert Eaton and Akin Konizi.
Rita, who has worked at Joseph Ferraro Hair in Harrogate for the past two years, said: “This has been a dream of mine for some time and I have worked extremely hard to win this award and I am delighted the judges believed in me and understood my vision. I couldn’t have done this without the support of Joseph Ferraro and the team at Joseph Ferraro Hair.
“I’m looking forward to representing the UK at the International Final next month when I will be competing against hairdressers from 42 other countries.”
Joseph Ferraro Hair is owned by current North Eastern Hairdresser of the Year Joseph Ferraro.
Joseph and his talented team have a string of awards and titles under their belt and Joseph is delighted with Rita’s golden success.
“Rita is a very talented stylist and we are all delighted with by her success at this latest competition. Everyone at Joseph Ferraro Hair is proud and will be fully supporting her as she goes forward to represent the UK in Wella’s international competition next month,” said Joseph.
“I am incredibly lucky to have such a fantastic team of talented hairdressers working across both Joseph Ferraro Hair salons in Harrogate,” he added.
