Local competes in televised competition

Miranda Meher competed on Global Beauty Masters, which will air in January.

Miranda Meher is originally from Sparwood, but has been making waves in the beauty industry. Recently, Meher returned from Las Vegas where she competed in a beauty event that will be televised on TLC in January 2016.

Meher competed on a team of three and was the nail technician for the event. Her teammate Amber Rodriguez was in charge of hair and Sierra Hawke was the main makeup stylist. While each teammate had their own specialties, Meher said that they cooperated in all elements of the competition.

“We all know how to do everything so we all kind of helped each other out in certain aspects,” said Meher.

Many of the details of the show, Global Beauty Masters, are kept in secrecy under contract until the show airs. Meher said that it was a stressful yet exciting experience.

“It was really, really nerve-wracking and it was also very stressful and we did not get a lot of sleep,” she said, adding that her team received many supplies just for being on the show. “The organizers gave us some sort of theme and we had a couple of seconds to figure out what we were doing and then we had to make up our model. We had to do the hair, makeup and nails for it. We got judged on it, and it was a lot of fun.”

Meher, 20, now lives in Lethbridge, Alta., where she attended the Purely Inspired Academy of Beauty, graduating in August. However, Meher said that she has had an interest in this industry since high school.

“It really started in Grade 10. My hairdresser would tell me all of the fun things that she got to do and I like knowing how to make myself and other people beautiful,” she said.

The Global Beauty Masters will air on Jan. 28, 2016 on TLC.
