Wisbech teenager Mallory Matthew is celebrating after scooping the Apprentice of the Year Award for hairdressing at the College of West Anglia.
Mallory joined the hairdressing team at Top to Toe salon in Wisbech last year and has gone from strength to strength.
Salon owner Paul Davies said: “Since joining the salon team it was always obvious that Mallory had a great future in the industry. I’m delighted that her talent and hard work have been recognised so soon. I’m sure that we will hear a lot more about her over the coming years.”
Mallory picked up her award at COWA accompanied by Top To Toe Salon Trainer Rachel Shepherd.
Mallory said: “The award is the perfect start to my career and the perfect boost for becoming a fully qualified stylist at Top To Toe.”
The teenager is the third apprentice from the team to win the prestigious award, with the first being salon manager, Kate Drew, some 10 years ago.
