A TOWN centre hairdresser has been named in a select group of just eight stylists from across the country.

Jimmy Sharpe, who works at Jakarta on Bridge Street, has been named as one of the members of the Schwarzkopf LEAP team.

Jimmy said "I still can't believe that I've been selected to join this highly prestigious team. The variety of training and inspiration is overwhelming. Not many people get the chance to spend days with industry greats like top session stylists Louie Byrne & Tyler Johnson.”
