The results of the 2011 Salon Vie Stylist Shootout!
Daisy styled by Debbie

In FIRST PLACE, as voted for by you, we have Daisy, styled by Debbie, senior stylist in our Tattenhall salon. Here are a few of your comments:

'The look and feel of the picture works brilliantly and creates the most professional shot out of them all - it has an almost high end fashion/couture feel to it. The angle of the shot focuses on the hair rather than the dress and I like the way the dress also subtly reflects the look/feel of the hair (but by being a darker colour than the hair colour, it complements the hair rather than detracting attention). The clever use of the mask also takes focus away from any make-up or the face, thus drawing the eye more to the hair. The mask also creates an air of mystery to the shot and made me look at the photo and the hair for longer than the other photos. I would love to go to a mystery ball or party dressed like this!'
'The sheer volume!'
'Really liked this model's hair, modern and a touch of mystery.'
'Overall, this look looks very sophisticated and I like the face makeup. It looks like she's just off to one of Elton John's glamorous, over the top balls.'
'Mysterious, sassy, yet elegant.'
'Looks sexy.'
'Just looks ace!'
'Intense photo, bold hair, very dramatic pose, love it ! Very pretty face, drawn to hair and face.'
'I thought that this was a very creative and AMAZING hairstyle!'
'I think the hairstyle is big and beautiful, something I'd like to have done for an avant garde event making it practical. It's sophisticated yet wild and messy. You'd definitely be noticed for wearing this.'
'I love this idea of a Masquerade Ball type hairstyle. The soft curl style of the hair is fantastic and matches up really well with the black make up and black veil over the eyes, and also the grey dress completes the whole hairstyle and compliments the make up colour theme.'
'Great overall look. Love the dress and makeup as well as the wacky hair!'
'Very unique and it has a lovely shape.'
'Excellent work!'
'I love the whole look, the grey and black theme work well with the blonde hair.'
'Very glamorous.'
'Cos it really is a 'hairdo' with no gimmicks - just high & mighty!! Very clever.'
'Because it is like the 60s and that 60s fashion is coming into the catwalk. I also like the size, big but not too big!'
'Very creative and I love the sense of fun and glamour.'
'Stunning and gravity defying.'
'Wow! How high is that!'
'I like the lines created around the style and the softness of the curls. The fringe is really dramatic and sharp, contoured to the curls.'
'Looks fantastic and yet still wearable. Great dress, great looks, lovely hair.'
'Elegant, stunning, dangerous and avant garde! Love the height of the hair.'
'It's simply stunning.'
'Because I think it is so beautiful and feminine.'
'It's a very different look but also very sophisticated. Looks amazing!'
'I love the styling. It's not overdone but still has drama. Hair is amazing as it looks glossy and clever to achieve such height.' 'Dress and mask complement the hair.'
'Funky but stylish.'
'Sophisticated and ethereal, demonstrating skill.'
'I like the fun with the sophistication of this style and the cleverness of the stylist.'
'Composition, stance, style and energy.'
'Very off the wall, however elegant and refined. Beautiful in a quirky way. Stunning colour & style of hair also model's dress and mask are fab!'
'Glamorous, edgy and makes a statement.'
'Very chic!'
'Fantastic hair and very classy model.'
'Beautiful and elegant.'
'Unique twist on classic elegance of 1600-1700 era brought up to date with more loose curls and waves.'
