Her work is called 'Toxic Fashion' and is about sustainability and 'the fashion industry's lack of ethical values'.

She said: “For all hair salons across the country, the last few months has been an incredibly challenging time, but I was determined to use this ‘downtime’ for positive action.

"My collection is something that I worked on during lockdown and I am thrilled that it has been selected for the finals of the Most Wanted Awards.”

The winner will be announced on November 9.
