Brisbane based stylist, colourist and educator, Verity Faichen of Fruition Hair in Brisbane, can now add International Hairdressing Society award winner to her series of accolades, writes Adeline Kintono.

Following in the giant footsteps of previous winners Frank Apsotolopoulos, Joey Scandizzo and Marie Uva, the stylist’s photograph will be used as the campaign image for the International Hairdressing Society throughout 2014, becoming the brand’s “national face”. 

Photographic work is not a new experience for Faichen who has been the happy recipient of a host of awards, including the UK L’Oréal Colour Trophy Northwest in 2007. Additionally she was a finalist in the L’Oréal Colour Trophy and British Hairdressing Awards in 2011. This prestigious award is another career highlight and surely a source of inspiration for many students at the Fruition Creative Hub.
