A 20-YEAR-OLD has been named the overall winner of Wales’ premier event for hair and beauty talent.

Sacha Gilman, who works for Captiva Spa, Caerphilly, won the award at Salon Cymru, a week before she was due to complete her apprenticeship.

“I just can’t believe it and I feel so chuffed after working so hard,” she said.

“It’s the last time I can compete at Salon Cymru because I have finished my apprenticeship. Out of all the competitions I do, Salon Cymru is my favourite because it’s a realistic competition.”

In addition to the award, Miss Gilman won a weekend break in Trecco Bay, Porthcawl courtesy of new sponsor Park Dean Resorts along with a trophy.
