PERTH hairdresser Wren Patselis will represent Australia at the TrendVision International Hair Awards, to be held in Barcelona, Spain, in November.

Ms Patselis, who owns Head Office in the CBD, was the first West Australian to win the national Wella competition in seven years.

“It was a big process, we had to do a photo shoot; it was a whole look, cut, colour, make up, wardrobe,” she told Guardian Express.

“It was a specific brief, we had to create a trend that would be marketable commercially and on the catwalk.”

As Australian top 10 national finalists, Ms Patselis and assistant make-up artist Tamzin Mulder went to Melbourne to re-create the look and defeated nine other teams to win the right to represent the nation.

Ms Patselis began working as a hairdresser when she was 15; nineteen years later she is representing Australia and taking on the world’s best.

“I loved the creativity, the fashion. I have always loved high fashion,” she said.

The competition will be held on November 6.

Ms Patselis paid tribute to stylist Karen Drummond, photographer Meiji Nguyen, and designer Jonte Pike.

“We wouldn’t have been able to achieve the amazing results we have without them,” she said.
