Turlock native Sabrina Vann made her community proud by receiving second place in the annual Wella Student Competition in the 2013 America’s Beauty Show in Chicago. Vann was one of 24 finalists who competed in the “Sebastian Professionals” category.
“It’s a rewarding feeling knowing that I was placed second in the nation for the look I created,” said Vann. “It’s awesome knowing that I have earned the respect of other professionals in the industry.”
The Turlock High graduate is currently a cosmetology student at the prestigious Bellus Academy located in San Diego. For her Sebastian Student Competition 2013 submission, Vann was deeply inspired by a play on textiles and the Sebastian collection, aiming for a look that was young and innovative, while seamlessly communicating her vision.
The Chicago competition is just a step on the road to Vann's career goals.
“After I graduate from Bellus, the next step in building my career will hopefully be to assist an amazing stylist. My dream job is becoming a master stylist and platform artist – I have developed a true passion for editorial and runway work,” said Vann.
