Ollie Steps Up for Scholarship Success!

Thursday, 19 February 2015 13:01

Step Up & Shine Scholarship winner Ollie Vines has recently taken part in his final education session - a precision cutting course with his mentor Debbie G held at the ASK Academy in London.


Ollie Vines, from Heaven Hair in Salisbury, has enjoyed twelve months of bespoke training after winning his scholarship place on the scheme – a joint initiative from The Fellowship for British Hairdressing and The National Hairdressers Federation in memory of industry legend Christofer Mann.


“It was good to spend my last Step Up & Shine day with Debbie,” said Ollie.  “She’s been a total inspiration to me over the last year and it was great to have a chance to learn precision cutting skills from her.”


The day involved discussions around the culture and history of hair and an opportunity to work on block heads to create both a classic graduated bob and a round graduation with disconnections. Ollie finishes his Step Up & Shine journey in March, so the search for a new recipient is well under way with the judging process due to culminate in the announcement of a new Step Up & Shine recipient at The Fellowship President’s Night in April.


“Ollie has been a joy to work with,” says Debbie G.  “He epitomises why we need this project…. An enthusiastic and talented young hairdresser who is passionate about education that without this opportunity just wouldn’t get access to it because of lack of resources and funds.  He has grown so much this year and I wish him well for the future.  He really has stepped up and shone!”
