Every year the New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers hold regional and national competitions seeking to crown industry members as leading hair stylists. Melanie Langley of Sadal & Co. Hair Salon on The Terrace, Wellington, is a top contender in the field. She has won regional and national awards, travelling to Australia and USA to learn and compete. PIVOT photographed one of her models at the Wellington regional champs to provide campaign imagery that complemented her bold styling.
