What’s next for one Louisiana stylist? According to WhatsNextAwards.com, “envy, respect and fame” could be part of her immediate future.
Bree D’Errico, a stylist at the AHA! Massage Clinic in Houma, Louisiana, recently won Sebastian’s “What’s Next?” photo styling competition, an honor that earned her an expenses-paid trip to work behind-the-scenes with the Sebastian Professional Design Team at New York’s Fashion Week in February, and an interview in Blackbook magazine.
Stylists from across the country submitted photos of their work for the competition, and D’Errico was one of eight finalists in the “people’s choice” award. Consumers and professionals were encouraged to vote for their favorite—and most “fearless”—stylist at WhatsNextAwards.com.
For her winning entry, D’Errico submitted “Textrosity,” a pair of images featuring AndiMiller, a 20-year-old nursing student who works part-time at AHA! She used Stylixer to set the structured bang wave, and used Zero Gravity to mold and shape Miller’s naturally curls, followed by Halo Mist to highlight and emphasize the shape and shine.
