Wendy Snips Her Way Into a Mans World 2Blonde Wendy Hutchinson turned a few heads on Monday night when she entered a hair dressing competition as a barber.

In trim miniskirt and blue overalls, the 17 year old Harold Wood hairdresser clipped away alongside her 4 male competitors.

Wendy of Reddencourt Road, didn’t win any prizes or any thanks from her boyfriend model John Burgess, 19, of Farringdon Avenue, Harold Hill.

“It’s so short,“ he grimaced, as he looked at the end result in a mirror. “It’ll take a good five weeks to grow back again".

Wendy who has been working at the Continental Box, Redbridge, for over a year studying men’s hairdressing in the evenings. “I never thought for a moment that I would win, but I wanted to enter for the experience” she said.

She eventually hopes to work on a ship as a ladies and gentlemen hairdresser.

The competition was organised jointly by Redbridge and District branch of the national hairdresser’s federation Havering technical College and Havering education Committee.

Held at the College in Ardleigh Green, it was only open to apprentices only.

The Redbridge trophy for ladies apprentices went to Kathleen Wyndham, 17, of Clematis Road, Harold Hill. Second as Pauline Cross, of Lime Avenue, Brentwood, and third, Julie Maddern, 17 year old daughter of the south Ockendon actor Vic Maddern. 

Dagenham apprentice Stephen Wood, 16, of Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch, won the Havering plaque for junior gentlemen’s styling. Close on his heels came an apprentice of only ten weeks standing, Chris Rowland of Turescent, Hainault.
