A group of six up-and-coming hairdressers have been chosen to create the new Generation NOW team for 2016. Generation NOW was launched six years ago by Wella Professionals to discover rising stars hungry to make their mark in the world of hairdressing.


Providing a unique platform for inspirational, up and coming talent, Wella’s Generation NOW offers a spectacular launch pad to those involved to become a key player in the competitive hairdressing industry. Those talented six are:

Galina Johnson – Francesco Group Streetly, Sutton Coldfield.

Shauna Forman – House Of Colour, Dublin

Kay Corbett – Medusa, Edinburgh

Nikki Clifford- NJUK, Chesterfield

Paolo Silveri – Supercuts in Liverpool Street Station, London.

Gemma Galley – Volt, Sheffield

“Being part of the Generation Now team last year was incredible. I really enjoyed the whole experience and it’s definitely helped me hone my skills and develop many elements of my hairdressing. I was challenged, I learnt far more than I expected and as a result it has definitely helped me grow in confidence. It’s a great initiative to be part of,” commented 2015 member Heather Shaw, Francesco Group.

Now the search for the Generation NOW team is over, this group of budding stars will experience the chance to work with and be inspired by numerous iconic hairdressers over the next year. Their year commences with an intensive Bootcamp week where the team will be mentored by a team on leading industry experts.They will also receive media training, product knowledge and presentation skills. 

The team will be involved with a busy schedule of exciting events and activities organised by Wella Professionals, to help them gain an invaluable insight into what it takes to work at the top echelons of the industry. The newly crowned Generation Now team will go on to work at the Wella Professionals TrendVision Award UK & Ireland Final, as well as featuring on the Fellowship Stage at Salon International.
