Competition nod for Ben after TV show appearance

Ben Cope, stylist at Francesco’s hairdressers in Derby, has impressed his bosses after appearing in Channel 4’s Undercover Boss.

The 21 year old hair stylist was featured in the programme where the boss of a business goes undercover to see how the company works from a roots level.

Ben impressed his employers through his true passion for hairdressing and they were so pleased with his work that they agreed to sponsor him to enter a major industry competition in 2013.

Ben will be entering Transvision, a competition which sees participants organizing a photo shoot and submitting pictures of their models to the judges.

The shortlisted competitors will then be invited to recreate their work in a live setting.

Ben, of Ripley, said: “It’s a competition that I’ve always wanted to enter but it costs money to organise the photo shoot. I was delighted when Francesco Group agreed to sponsor me; it was a really nice surprise.”

Ben is also preparing to take part in the Young Hairdresser of the Year Awards this December.
