A hairstylist has been shortlisted for a prestigious international award.

Michael Francos from the D&J Ambrose Salon, in Bridge Street, Pinner, has been nominated for the AIPP (International Association of Professional Hairdressing Magazines Awards) in the Best Men Category.

The awards are run by an association that represents 64 hairdressing publications around the world. The winner will be announced at the Alternative Hair Show 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall in October.

Mr Francos said: "To have work recognised internationally is the highest accolade and being involved with the AIPP awards is such an achievement for all of us at D&J Ambrose.

"It would be amazing to win and have our work recognised on the biggest stage."
