KRISTINA Michelmore is two seasons ahead in fashion - hair fashion that is.

Kristina, who works at Jodi’s Too hair salon, got offered a trip of a lifetime to Macau, in China, for one week with all expenses paid and five-star treatment and accommodation.

The trip was with Schwarzkopf, celebrating 50 years of Igora, and the launch of next Summer’s Essential Looks campaign.

The guest list was small and exclusive, with a total of 30 invited, made up of hairdressers and Schwarzkopf executives.

“When I was given this opportunity I was extremely excited and felt very privileged to be among the world’s and Australia’s leading hairdressers,” Kristina said. “To be one of 20 hairdressers to go is pretty special.

“It was flash and extravagant and is just one of those experiences hairdressers don’t get regularly.”

Kristina said the trip was a sneak peak of the new summer range of styles and colours coming out at the end of the year in Australia.

“The winter launch is just being released in Australia at the moment, but I got to look at next season’s launch, which was very special,” she said.

Working with the renowned Tyler Johnson was the highlight for Kristina, especially doing look and learn lessons and hands on workshops with the man whose resume includes doing the hair of the Royal Family and David and Victoria Beckham.

“I am always learning new colour and cutting techniques. I picked up so many new ideas,” she said.

“Hairdressing has always been my passion, but I have been doing it for 23 years and this has definitely renewed that passion.

“I would say this would be the most exciting thing that has happened in my career so far.”
