Taylor Smith is a stylist at the Face It! salon in downtown Eugene.
She’s ranked seventh in a prestigious competition called Wella Trend Vision.
Smith says more than a thousand stylists from all over the country entered the competition and she’s thrilled to be representing eugene in the finals.
“It’s hard to believe that it happened to me especially, since this was my first time entering any competition so it’s very surreal and I’m thankful for all the hard work that everybody has helped me,” said Smith.
She’s flying to Los Angeles in July for the final presentation and will find out if she wins it all.
