Milngavie stylist to the stars Taylor Ferguson is working his magic on a stunning young neighbour for one of the biggest days of her life.
Award-winning Taylor’s latest assignment is with newly crowned Miss Scotland Ellie McKeating, also from Milngavie, to help prepare her for the Miss World finals.
Taylor is making sure the 19-year-old’s golden tresses are a cut above for the big event in London in December this year.
Part of Ellie’s prize during her year-long reign as Miss Scotland is to have her hair care needs met by Taylor’s team in his Glasgow city centre salon.
Taylor and wife Anne have lived in Milngavie for nearly 40 years and have looked after a long list of big-name celebrities.
These include singers Suzanne Shaw and Lulu, Rod Stewart’s wife Penny Lancaster, TV celebs Colin and Justin, lingerie boss Michelle Mone and model Rachel Hunter,
Taylor has already prepared Ellie for a range of photo shoots during her reign.
He said: “We’ve worked with the Miss Scotland contest winners for 12 years now and we always have great fun looking after them.
“It’s amazing how their confidence grows as the year’s reign progresses.
“It’s a big year not only because of the Miss World finals but because of all the social engagements the girls are invited to attend. Ellie will be a stunning ambassador for Scotland in 2014 and 2015.
“We’re hoping she can do great things in the London finals.
“We will all be glued to the TV set to see how she gets on.”
As well as all the cutting and colouring, Taylor will make sure Ellie is armed with the best products and beauty tips on how to keep her crowning glory in tip-top condition for the big finals.
Ellie is delighted with her new style guru. In a message to Taylor’s team she said: “Thank you, to the moon and back!”
