13 times bright was alright . . . Dumfries and Galloway style

PROVING that bright is most certainly alright and putting Dumfries and Galloway on the map, a local hairdresser has become the only stylist in Scotland to be officially sponsored by world famous Manic Panic.

Curl up and Dye Dumfries’s Nicola McMinn is over the moon to be the only current Scottish stylist sponsored by the bright hair loving brand, who produce an array of colourful hair dyes.

Excited Nicola said: “I am so happy and honored to be the new Manic Panic sponsored stylist, and being the first Scottish stylist is very exciting.

“I set myself a goal at the start of the year to be recognised by my peers and I now feel my hard work is paying off. I am so excited for the future.”

She added: “I’ve always wanted to be more than just a salon owner, the hair industry is always evolving and the chance to travel and try new things has always been a wish of mine. This is going to be a great year for me and Curl Up and Dye.”

And convinced that there’s a bright shade out there for everyone, she said: “Manic Panic’s range of colours is so vast that there is a colour for everyone, from vivid bright tones to customising colours or creating more pastel tones. And now the new professional line that has just launched with colours like smoke screen the new possibilities are endless.”
