31 Oct AND ANOTHER SLOANS WIN GOES TO… ANNE!
Hot on the heels of Chris’s big AHFA award as NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year 2022, we are so thrilled to announce that Lane Cove’s very own Senior Stylist Anne has just been recognised for her incredible talent at the esteemed WorldSkills Competition for 2022 in Finland. In an extremely competitive year she placed 7th in the world at the global championship, as well as being awarded a Medallion of Excellence – the first for Australia since 2017. Incredible right?!
Representing Australia as the very best in hairdressing, she appeared alongside other leading trade and skills talent from around the world with thousands of spectators watching on. We of course already know just how amazing she is. Anne joined the Sloans team back in 2019 as Junior Stylist, fresh from a move from her hometown of Wagga Wagga. Mentored by our very own Scott Sloan, also a Wagga Wagga hometown local for those who didn’t know, she is a key part of the Sloans Creative Team and consistently assists on editorial shoots and campaigns as well as working with her loyal North Shore clientele.
Anne started her WorldSkills journey back in 2019 when she competed in the regional competition and won gold, before taking out silver in the national competition in 2021. Based on her stand out talent and technique she was chosen as a Skill Squad member before being selected as one of the elite ‘Skillaroos’ with Team Australia. WorldSkills globally represents more than 45 skills in over 75 member countries and regions, all working together with youth, educators and industries to help prepare the workforce and talent of today for the jobs of the future. Pretty exciting.
Anne will now inspire the next generation of regional hairdressers when she returns to Wagga Wagga to help judge the next round of competitions, back where she started her journey three years ago. We are so proud of you Anne and thrilled to see what you will achieve next!
