RUBBING shoulders with the likes of Ruby Rose and the reigning Miss Australia was all in a day's work for Pacific Paradise hairdresser Nicole Cook.
The 36-year-old was invited to the Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week in Sydney this past week to work on the models' hair.
Ms Cook made the cut after auditioning with hair brand Redken in Brisbane earlier this year.
For three days she got the chance to meet and mingle with the biggest names in Australian fashion.
"It was the highlight of my career," she said.
"I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would do Fashion Week.
"I just had a ball, met some great people and made some new connections."
One of Ms Cook's favourite moments was working with acclaimed New Zealand hairdresser Richard Kavanagh.
She also appeared on camera with Sunrise reporter Edwina Bartholomew as part of a makeover segment with Mr Kavanagh.
Ms Cook also worked on Miss Australia 2011 Scherri-Lee Biggs' hair.
She was the opening model for the Kooey show, where she unveiled her debut collection.
Ms Cook owns Pacific Paradise studio Miss B Hair Dezine.
