Coventry hairdresser scoops national beauty award

Coventry Editorial 25th Nov, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A COVENTRY hairdresser went the extra mile to raise over £1,000 for charity and win a national beauty contest in the process.

21-year-old Keresley resident Lindsay Clark outshone her rivals – who travelled from as far as Wales and London – to win the UK’s Dazzling Beauty contest on the coast of Brighton at the Hilton Hotel.

With her family and boyfriend supporting her, Lindsay also won Miss Publicity and Miss People’s Choice.

Lindsay’s triumph comes a few months after she successfully hosted the Stay Tuned Festival at St Finbarrs in Holbrook.

Alongside cousin Colette, Lindsay raised funds for four charities throughout the festival including the British Heart Foundation, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Abbey Park Hospice and Young Stroke Survivors.

A delighted Lindsay told The Observer that she was overwhelmed with the result and never expected to win the national Dazzling Beauty competition.

She added: “The decision to enter the competition came about when I won Miss Coventry in March.

“A friend at the event told me about Miss Dazzling Beauty and it went from there.

“I reached the final of the event on application terms and honestly didn’t think that I was going to win – the past five months I’ve been building up my confidence and to win was just great.

“I met some fantastic like-minded people at the competition who all inspired me to continue my charity work.”

With eleven of Lindsay’s family members making the trip down to Brighton for the event, she was keen to voice her passion for the event and how she plans to continue her popular Stay Tuned Festival for 2016.

Lindsay said: “I’ll keep my crown for a year and hope to generate more money for charity over the next 12 months.

“The Stay Tuned Festival will take place at St Finbarrs again next year though we’re yet to decide on a date – it’s most likely to occur in September and it will be bigger than ever.”
