It’s no secret that a place on The F.A.M.E. Team is one of the most sought-after in the industry. Short for The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence, this annual initiative was created by The Fellowship to nurture, encourage and promote an elite foursome of up-and-coming hairdressing megastars.
Past team members include famous names such as Jamie Stevens, Sharon Peake, Errol Douglas MBE and Umberto Giannini, so it’s not hard to see why a place on the team is so prestigious.
Past teams have travelled to Dubai, Australia and South Africa and spent the year working under the wing of their hairdressing icons. Not only this, but The F.A.M.E. Team are given multiple stage slots at shows such as Salon International and HJ Live.
The process of choosing these team members is a meticulous one! Once you’ve been chosen as a semi-finalist, you’ll be invited to be judged on your technical skills along with your fellow contestants, before having a formal interview. If you’re then chosen as a finalist, your next task is to perform on stage at Salon International and wow the judging panel with your creativity, innovation and passion.
Current team member Jordanna Cobella from Cobella says, “being in The F.A.M.E. Team is certainly the highlight of all our careers so far and has already been such an unforgettable experience. It’s opened so many doors and opportunities for us and we’ve been exposed to all of the different elements of the industry, allowing us to get a taste for all aspects of hairdressing, fashion and session work. We’ve been networking with incredibly talented artists which is a priceless experience that we have only The Fellowship to thank for! The F.A.M.E. Team enriches your career and your skills and I couldn’t think of a better way to get the best out of the hairdressing industry!”
