The new Face of the salon winner revealed

A MODELLING contract and the chance to front a hair salon’s campaign has been snapped up.

The annual Face of the salon competition saw a record number of aspiring models enter as judges - including senior staff from the Letchworth GC business and The Comet editor Darren Isted - made their decision.

Serena Smith, of Henlow, was declared the winner and will spend the next year promoting the salon, as well as working for Herts Model Agency, owned by photographer Paul Winterton.

Although the 23-year-old, a graduate from Durham University, has done some modelling, she did not have high hopes.

“When I arrived and saw how stunning the other girls were, I have to say that I never expected to come anywhere, let alone first!” said Serena, who will also receive 12 months free hair care at the salon.
