Damaris Earlewine, the reigning Sebastian What’s Next Awards (WNA) champion, recently had the opportunity to go backstage at New York Fashion Week and join the styling team for Christian Siriano's Spring/Summer 2017 presentation - an experience she captured exclusively for Beauty Launchpad.
In addition to working with Siriano and other Sebastian Professional International and Design Team artists, Damaris also had the opportunity to work with Anthony Cole, one of Sebastian's Top Artists. Anthony, who was the lead stylist for the show, provided valuable mentorship and insights backstage, leading Damaris and the team from creative inspiration through the final look. The opportunity was a perfect example of how Wella’s Hairdressers at Heart mission of mentorship comes to life through the company’s competition initiatives, and showcases the difference mentorship can make - even for the most talented of artists!
