A BAYSWATER-based hairdresser has proved to be a cut above the rest after she was named overall champion in a state competition.
Eclectic Styles Hair and Make Up owner Elizabeth Stillisano, of Forrestfield, was named the WA International Hairstylists Society State Championships overall champion.
She was also named men’s hairdresser of the year, second place for open fantasy colour and senior men’s classic hair cut and third place for open men’s urban art and open men’s colour.
Ms Stillisano, who opened her salon four years ago when she was 19, entered 10 models and apprentice Jo Milieri entered two models.
Ms Stillisano said her colourful entry in the open fantasy colour category had generated talk.
