Sunsilk 'Hadakari' regional workshops

Sunsilk ' Hadakari' will kick off in Negombo - the first of ten regional workshops to be held fortnightly over the next 5 months. The workshops will also travel to Galle, Balangoda, Badulla, Kuliyapitiya, Dehiathakandiya, Polonnaruwa, Kandy, Kalutara and Maharagama. Ten talented hair care professionals will be selected at each workshop and the one hundred profesionals who thus qualify will then proceed to participate for Sunsilk Style International 2008.

The ten winners from each region will be selected out of a pool of forty regional participants. Furthermore, the ten most outstanding models will also be selected from each region and both the model and profesional will be awarded with trophies and certificates.One model out of ten finalists will then be adjudged the ' Sunsilk Hadakari' for that region - the judging will be based on the transformation achieved by the hair care professional. The winning models will train alongside the professionals in order to give them an opportunity to be on the catwalk at the grand finale in 2008.

Ms Anjali De Silva Brand Manager for Sunsilk said " The hair and beauty care industry in Sri Lanka has a huge pool of talent to draw from - the objective of Sunsilk Hadakari is to identify and nurture this talent in order to raise the profile of the industry.
