A STUDENT hairdresser has got through to the final of a national modelling competition.
Danielle Temple was spotted by a talent scout at the Clothes Show in Birmingham last December and the 16-year-old entered the Miss Teen Queen UK competition and has since been named as one of the finalists.
The student hairdresser is now hoping to get enough votes from the public to beat her rivals and be crowned the winner.
Danielle, from Honley, said: “I was asked to take part in the competition by a photographer.
“I didn’t really think anything of it until I got a call inviting me to a photo-shoot. I had to go to London for the day which was really good.
“I’d done a bit of modelling before, just test shots, but this was in a really professional studio.
“All my friends are voting for me to win.
“It would be good to win and I’d like to be a model if something good came along.
“But I also enjoy hairdressing too, so we’ll see what happens.”
Danielle beat 5,500 other girls to be named among the top 50 in the national modelling competition.
Miss Teen Queen is the UK’s only beauty pageant for girls and gives them a chance to enter the world of modelling.
It is open to 13 to 19-year-olds from throughout the UK.
If Danielle wins, she will be presented with a new wardrobe of clothes from high street shops and a fashion portfolio.
She will also represent the UK at an international pageant and carry out charity work.
Her family and friends are voting for her.
Danielle’s grandmother, Doris Dalton, said: “We are very, very proud.
“It is quite exciting seeing her get all these votes.
“She’s never done any real modelling before so she’s done really well.
“Hopefully she’ll win.”
