Icelandic Hairdresser of the Year 2019: Katrin Sif Jónsdóttir

June 28, 2019

“My passion for hair is complete!”. Katrin Sif Jónsdóttir from Sprey Salon in Reykjavik was appointed the very first Icelandic Hairdresser of the Year at Nordic Hair Awards in Copenhagen.

The very first winner of Icelandic Hairdresser of the Year was presented in Copenhagen at Nordic Hair Awards 2019. The competition started already in the beginning of the year when the competitors could send in their entries. A jury nominated three finalists that the Icelandic population got to cast their vote on. It was a tight race but on 9th of June, the result was clear; Katrin Sif Jónsdóttir from Sprey Salon in Reykjavik was the winner!

– I’m so surprised! This is totally amazing. Iceland is such a small country where everyone knows everyone. We have a lot of talented hairdressers, so the competition is hard. It’s not easy to stand out in the crowd, says a very happy Katrin after having received the award.

Can you tell us about your look?

– The hairstyle is reminiscent of a unicorn. The hair is short in the nape and the colours are blue, pink and green. The nuances are soft and pastel. The inspiration comes from the work of Vidal Sassoon and my personal preferences. I had an amazing model and photographer, and everything turned out perfect. If the team is prefect, the result gets perfect.
