Models hair a feat of Clay

FASHION is fine but Clay Burns reckons one of the best things about being a hairdresser at the Melbourne Fashion Festival is that you never quite know whose head you'll be working on.

Megan Gale today?

Jennifer Hawkins tomorrow?

Clay and colleagues Deanne Evans and Chelsea Copping, from the George On Sebel salon in Maroochydore, have been invited to tend the locks of models at the nation's premier fashion event and he said the possibility of working on a celebrity coiffure would make the long hours worthwhile.

That, and the privilege of being part of something with such an international profile.

"We will be down there for four days and it will be pretty hectic," Clay said.

"Some days we will start prepping at 4am for a show that starts at 10am and then come back and do it all again later in the day.

"They are huge productions for the likes of Harpers Bazaar and Marie Claire magazines and the exciting part is that you never know whose hair you'll be working on.

"It could be Megan Gale or Jen Hawkins. All the top models will be there.

"This is the pinnacle event of Australian fashion and the rest of the world will be watching."

The festival runs until tomorrow.
