Nordic Young Talent of the Year 2019: Martina RawetJune 28, 2019
“This award is good for my self-esteem!”. Martina Rawet was appointed Nordic Young Talent of the Year sponsored by Hair and Body Care by the jury at the very first Nordic Hair Awards in Copenhagen.
The jury did their final evaluation of the four finalist contributions during the day at Nordic Hair Awards and Expo. The winner was revealed at the award ceremony in the evening and Martina Rawet from Billys Bumble and Bumble in Norway was the one who got to enter the stage and accept the award.
– It was very stressful and fun at the same time, says an extra happy Martina backstage after receiving the award.
Martina was nervous the whole day at Nordic Hair Awards and Expo.
– I was very tense and nervous. When they called my name, I didn’t understand it at first. But then I realised that “yes, it’s me!”.
Who inspired you to compete?
– Mostly the artist Kiddy Smile and my own thoughts about what I think looks nice. During this journey, my family, friends and colleagues and not least my boss Birger have been very supportive. Also, my sister has been great support, she is also a hairdresser.
Motivation from the jury:
“With a great, bold approach the winner of Nordic Young Talent of the Year created a technically well executed look with a strong shape and playful colours”.
