Wahl UK’s Simon Shaw has announced the winner of this year’s Search for a Star competition, with Joe Savage of Maxwell’s Hair and Beauty in Biggleswade taking home the title for 2014.

Held at Salon International, Wahl’s Search for a Star saw nine finalists battle it out to claim the accolade, with each taking part in heats on Saturday in front of the judging panel and a crowd of industry professionals.

The panel, which included Shaw and his team of experts from the Wahl Academy, judged finalists on their presentation skills, technical ability, choice of model and overall appearance, with Savage scooping first place by just one point, such was the calibre of candidates this year.

Savage has won a year’s worth of money-can’t-buy experiences with Shaw as part of the Wahl UK artistic team. Of his win, he commented:

“I am over the moon at winning the competition. It has always been my dream to work with the Wahl artistic team and I cannot believe I have won and achieved my dream. I can’t wait for the next 12 months.”
