The Hereford hairdresser selected for the first prize

A HEREFORD hairstylist has spoken of her shock after being shortlisted as a finalist for a national award.

Danielle Statham, who works at Avant Garde salon in Church Street, has reached the national final of the Fellowship of British Hairdressing awards.

Winners have the opportunity to join its industry-recognized FAME team.

The FAME team travels across the UK to connect and network with the best and most iconic hairdressers and learn their skills.


They are also invited to high-profile events to demonstrate and style hair.

Ms Statham was also asked to do her hair during this year’s London Fashion Week.

Avant Garde said of Ms Statham’s achievement: “She just went and did it.

“Dani is now one of eight finalists for the chance to be part of the UK’s hottest team.

“We are super excited for October and your Avant Garde family wishes you the best of luck.”


Ms Statham said: “I am so excited and even more honored to be part of this incredible opportunity.

“I was so shocked that all the other contestants were incredibly talented.

“I know not many hairdressers even get the chance to make the semi-finals, so I was thrilled to get this far.

“I feel like this is my moment to shine.”
