IT'S Sydney Fashion Week. 

And there's plenty going on, especially backstage.

Models are getting their hair and makeup done, fashion designers are frantically running around and a crowd is waiting.

Erin Zackeresen was lucky enough to be right in the middle of all the chaos.

The Rockhampton woman was a hair stylist at Sydney Fashion Week earlier this month, styling the hair of models from around the world. 

Erin got the chance to work at fashion week after competing for a spot on the Redken styling team in Brisbane.

It wasn't only Erin who had the opportunity of a lifetime, her boss, Peter Tickner of Studio Pedro, was styling the hair of models with the GHD team.

Peter even got the chance to style the hair of Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio.

The entire experience was one Erin and Peter will remember, getting the chance to mingle with hair directors from across the country.

Erin said they got to work on hair styles from blow drying to loose curls and pony tails, but getting the style right is harder than it sounds.

"It sounds like easy styles to do, but they are very particular when getting the finish look right," Erin said.

"You only really get two hours to do the hair of 30 models and they need the exact same hairstyle for the show they're in."

While Erin's experience at fashion week was unbelievable, the hairdresser said she's happy to be working in Rockhampton.

"(Fashion week) is a good opportunity too, it's good fun," Erin said. 

"(But) I love working in Rockhampton at Pedro's Studio, and having the relationship with my clients."
