The Fellowship of British Hairdressing at Salon International 2021

We’ve always had our roots (pardon the pun) firmly planted in education and have been proud members of the Fellowship of British Hairdressing for many years. The Fellowship helps focus on artistic and creative quality and provides support for future hairdressing talent – values that are so meaningful to us. Jack has served on the Fellowship Project X Team and Brendan is a Fellow with Honours.

We’re proud that our Artistic Director Leanne is through to the finals of the F.A.M.E Team (Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence) an initiative created to nurture, encourage, and promote an elite group of young, up and coming hairdressers.

Leanne was recently (and very bravely!) performing on The Fellowship Stage during a jam-packed Salon International Exhibition at Excel, London as part of the F.A.M.E project. Always one for creativity, Leanne presented her galactic duo of Avant Garde sputnik style hair-up and stunning colour

“My vision was space-inspired. I balayaged from the dark roots to the ends creating a soft blend, then used colours from the galaxy – blue, green, purple, and colour-melted them together. It looks vivid, strong and powerful, just like the universe.”

There was a rapturous reaction from the crowd, and whatever the results of the F.A.M.E team are in December, we’re confident Leanne has a great future ahead of her.
