A FELIXSTOWE hair salon is searching for a girl with the looks to set her on a path of a great future as a model.

Bryan Richards salon in Gainsborough Road has been chosen to help hair products company Wella find the Face of 2008 - and to provide the East Anglian entry for the national competition.

Salon owner Bryan Rainford said: “This is a great opportunity for a girl interested in getting involved in a modelling career.

“We are looking for someone with great hair and a nice personality.”

Entrants must be 16 years old or over, and should send a photograph of themselves with their name, phone number and other contact details on the back to the salon by February 28. They should call 01394 277300 if they would like more details.

The girls must also be available on March 21 when a shortlist of potential winners of Wella Face of 2008 will be announced at a charity hair and fashion show at the Hotel Elizabeth Orwell, Hamilton Road, in Felixstowe.

Tickets for the evening are £12.50 each - available from Bryan Richards or the Evening Star office in Hamilton Road - and all proceeds will go to Cancer Research.

The evening will be compered by BBC Radio Suffolk personalities Nick Pandolfi and Bob Shelley, with clothes by Dress Sense, men's fashions by Wils, dancers from the Performing Arts Society, plus music, and a raffle or auction.
