The Serge Comtesse Group – a hairdressing cabal of 80 French salons – is flying in three star stylists for the Kingdom’s first ever charity hairdressing show, to be held tomorrow night at the PSE (Pour un Sourire d’Enfant) Centre in Phnom Penh.

Sabine Roger-Domeneck, Céline Antunes and Christine Comtesse were all finalists in an international stylist competition set up by beauty giant Schwarzkopf, and they will be demonstrating/inflicting the latest trends in haircuts and hair colouring on 12 professional models and 12 students from PSE.

All money raised from the show will go to PSE, an NGO that provides vocational training for Khmer people in a variety of professions.

Touch Len, public relations manager for PSE, told 7Days that “The event will be a precious occassion to emphasise the creativity and excellence of French ‘hair haute-couture’.

“Guests will enjoy the show while tasting an exclusive gala dinner, provided by the PSE Institute Hotel School, and discussing the importance of solidarity towards underprivileged children of Cambodia.”

The French stars will be assisted by students from the PSE Beauty Care and Hairdressing School.
