Britain’s Best Hairdresser

Kate Moss

Supermodel and Topshop design supremo Kate Moss is rumoured to be making a move into television with a stint on a new reality show titled Britain’s Best Hairdresser.

One of her best friend’s and hairdresser to the stars, James Brown, is trying to lure the model into working on the new show which scours the country for budding new hairdressers.  Brown is also hoping to snare other buddies Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler to appear on the show, “I love the discipline of working in the salon, out on shoots and shows, and also with celebrities and supermodels. There is a lot of skill and technique required with hair cutting and this is something I will be looking out for especially.  Here in the UK we have a great history of producing talented fashion designers, photographers and stylists, and I am looking forward to creating that same focus and success with our hairdressing talent.”

The nationwide search will start next month with auditions in Manchester on August 8th and in London on August 15th.

The shortlist will be whittled down to ten contestants who will live and work together in a luxurious London pad as they compete against each other in a series of tasks to test their flair and skill.

Each week, one stylist will leave the show until James is left with his Great British Hairdresser.  The winner will get the opportunity to style an A-List celebrity for the cover of a magazine as well as an offer to work in James Brown’s salon. 

The 10-part show will air on E4 early next year.
