A Sudbury salon is a hair’s breadth away from being named the winner of a prestigious award.

Fatal Attraction in North Street has been given four places in one of the hairdressing industry’s most acclaimed competitions – the L’Oreal Colour Trophy 2013.

The salon, which is run by husband and wife team Des and Tracie Webb, will be competing in the regional finals of the event in Cambridge toady.

To reach this stage, the business, which started 22 years ago, had to get past more than 1,000 other entries with photographs showcasing the team’s technical ability and fashion awareness for both men and women.

Tracie, who employs 13 staff at the salon, said she was “overwhelmed” that all four images had been selected.

“We have worked very hard to create the looks that caught the eye of the selectors,” she said.

“We know how talented and creative our team are and it is great they are getting the recognition they deserve.”

The salon has taken part in the competition on two previous occasions, but is yet to snap up the top accolade.

“We are hoping that this year will be third time lucky,” added Tracie. “We are all very excited.”

The team will go up against 61 other salons from across the area and will need to create a model look in just 45 minutes.
