A hairdresser from Bedford has won a national award.
Stylist Kade Kut, of Image Barber, was presented with a trophy for the Afro Stylist of the Year in the Hairdressers Journal annual competitions, staged at Salon International.
Kade competed against five other finalists to become the overall winner.
Finalists were given 45 minutes to recreate the look that had secured them a place within their category. During the live event the finalists were watched by an audience as well as the judges.
Kade said: “When I was announced as the winner of Afro Stylist of the Year I was over the moon. It is such an honour to be recognised for my skill by industry icons and I am delighted to have this title under my belt.”
