The ghd talent spotting team interviewed Gap shortly after announcing his win: 


Why did you enter ghd Spotlight?

I entered because it's such a popular competition with a bundle of prizes! Not only do I get to have my video professionally filmed but I will also get to promote myself by starring on the ghd YouTube channel. And I also get to further my training by attending a ghd training course of my choice. 


What inspired you hair video entry?

I wanted to create a hairstyle that expressed my passion for fashion and style. I entered the competition when I was in Vietnam, China and Thailand working for fashion magazines where I came up with incorporating the infinity symbol into the hairstyle for the video. 


Describe yourself in five words.

Vibrant; Fashionable; Creative; Personal; Driven. 


How did you become a hairdresser?

When I was a child my grandmother would give me chop sticks and a small hairdryer to play with so I used to create curls in her hair. From then on I became obsessed with hair and as soon as I turned 16 I became a stylist and started working with fashion magazines. 


Where do you get your inspiration from?

Travel, work, fashion magazines, internet and street trends.


How does it feel to win the competition?

Completely overwhelmed.  When I first found out I wanted to cry – I was so happy! 


What do you like most about your job?

Being able to express myself and giving clients’ confidence by transforming their hairstyle!
