SYRUPP hair salon, of Buckden, has been shortlisted twice for the semi-finals of a national hairdressing competition. The American Crew competition consisted of a photographic entry of a mens style created by a stylist. We entered two stylists and their models, and both have been shortlisted, said salon owner Helen Akred. They were chosen from hundreds of entries. The next stage is the face-off exhibition that takes place in Manchester on Sunday November 28, hosted by ex-Hollyoaks duo Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries, where the 20 finalists will be announced. The competition is run by a hair-product company called American Crew, which also runs American and Australian versions.
