Hornchurch salon creates flame-haired looks for Havering’s torch relay

You’ve all heard of the Olympic flame now see the Olympic mane - a wacky winning hairdo created by a Hornchurch stylist to celebrate the flame’s historic journey through Havering on Sunday.

Bosses at The Vanilla Room, in High Street, challenged hairdressers to put their creative know-how to the test - and bring new meaning to the term ‘flame-haired’.

Georgie Tucker, a salon art director, won with her look, ‘Olympic Torch’ - a red-tipped Mohican.

Georgie said: “I’m a really creative hairdresser and love to keep trying out the newest looks. I can’t see my clients asking for this look in the salon, but who knows, if our athletes do well it might just catch on!”

Kerry Larcher, salon owner said: “The Olympic Torch competition has been fantastic fun, and stylists from both our Hornchurch and Brentwood salons have really enjoyed taking part.
