It’s been an amazing 2015 so far for Stages Hair Design, with our Creative Directors Richard and Simon organising another incredible Miss Bristol competition.

Miss Bristol 2015

The new Miss Bristol was crowned, and we’re wishing all the best for what will be a wonderful 12 months ahead for new Miss Bristol Meg Abernethy Hope.

The team at Stages Hair Design, has been reviewing the Miss Bristol 2014 event we recently organise and which saw Naomi Dunbar being crowned.


It was a fabulous evening, with more than 160 people attending the plush event at the Winchester Suite in Bristol’s Grand Hotel.

There were 18 finalists and standards were particularly high – the top five girls were only separated by 8 marks, and the evening saw three re-counts from the judging panel!

Naomi Dunbar, a 19-year-old estate agent from Wotton-Under-Edge was crowned as Miss Bristol 2014, whilst Natalie Franklin from Portishead won the Miss Popularity award by a single vote.

The evening was enhanced by a series of themed hair shows, created with fantastic work from top hairdressers in Bristol, with outstanding quality.

The charity raffle for Gloucester Cricket Club also raised £650, and we’d like to thank the Museum & Learning Centre for their hard work.

The Stages Hair Design team of stylists thoroughly enjoyed it, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to those who attended, competed, and helped to make it such a memorable Miss Bristol event. Here’s to many more!
