If you think you've got a youngster with the talent to make the cut, here are the stages for entry:

STAGE 1: Applicants send in a personal pitch saying why they feel they should be considered along with a summary of the creative work they will demonstrate at the next phase should they be selected.

STAGE 2: A shortlist are invited to present, completing the cutting and styling of pre-coloured models in one hour. The judges assess initial impressions, working practices and confidence.

STAGE 3: The finalists present their work to the judges in a three minute slot, showing sound technical knowledge as well as a flair for presentation. They then present their mood boards and the judges ask questions on their presentation.
