A PORTISHEAD hairstylist is celebrating a win at one of Britain’s biggest hairdressing contests.

Erin Casson beat off stiff competition to take first place in the photographic section at the International Hairdressing Championships in Blackpool.

The 21-year-old senior stylist, who works in the Cabstand salon of Robert John, had to style the hair and make-up of her model and then select an outfit to create an image worthy of the front cover of a magazine.

Erin said: “This was the first time I had entered a photographic competition, it was a challenge and a lot of hard work, so I am thrilled to have won.”
