“The model needs 100 percent confidence in you when they are sitting in your hot seat, so handle them with care and be the pro that you set out to be. Being professional and knowing your game will ensure you achieve the best results.”

“In the weeks leading up to the season, models need to take a seat in the hairdressers chair and have a few moisturising treatments with steam applied. It works wonders and remember that we (hairdressers) need a healthy foundation to work with for best results.”

“It really doesn’t matter what hair the model turns up with. If the model loved those beautiful long hair extensions in the previous show and the hair director on the next show doesn’t have the vision for that kind of hair, out they come. More often than not, at this stage the model is crying, but we do our best to calm her down and treat her like a princess.”

“Dont go for a colour change unless your agent has agreed first. In my (cough, cough) many years of doing shows around the globe, I’ve seen girls turn up with a new colour thinking they would be ‘experimental’ and as a result they haven’t worked that season due to them playing hairdressers at home.”

“Most importantly always remember there are so many other talented people doing the same thing so always give your 100 percent and karma will be your reward.”

“Celebrity models are just like you and I at the end of the day, so don’t go gaga over them. You will not only look like the new kid on the block, but you probably won’t be asked to work on more shows in the country you are in or want to work in as word really does get around.”
