New Format For Fellowship President's Event

Monday, 16 April 2018 13:31

This year's Fellowship For British Hairdressing President’s Night took place at the Skylon restaurant on London's Southbank – a new venue heralding a totally new format compared with what has occurred in past years.

A more informal, laid back networking opportunity was accompanied by a DJ set to create the atmosphere and buzz that President, Karine Jackson was striving for for her interim year in the role: “For this interim year of the Presidency, we wanted to give our members the platform to meet other industry members who they may not have had the chance to meet otherwise!”  said Karine.  

President’s Network also saw the return of the Live Lounge, where guests took to the stage to sit beneath the hood. First to the stage was President Karine Jackson, accompanied by Jo Martin, whose two-year role as Chairman is coming to an end. Jo reflected on her time in the chair, as her and Karine shared stories from their time working together, including The  Hairdressers Charity bike ride in Italy last summer, leading nicely into the charity’s President, Sam Grocutt, taking to the spotlight to explain the wonderful work of the organisation. 

President’s Network was the perfect occasion for members to celebrate the announcement of this year’s winner of the Christofer Mann Step UP & SHINE Scholarship in association with NHF to be announced. Securing the runners-up spot is Kim Jones from The Salon, and this year’s talented winner is Nicola Hamm from Escape Hair Lounge. Nicola will now embark on an invaluable journey of education worth £2,500, put together and mentored by industry legend Debbie G. To close the evening, exclusive interviews were live streamed to thousands on social media. First up was Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year, Jamie Stevens who shared stories from his days on The F.A.M.E. Team, which he revealed was the biggest and best thing he has ever done. He was joined by Karine, who took the time to talk the audience through her journey with the Fellowship and how it has led to where she is today as the President. 

Sarah Black from Linton and Mac also took to the Live Lounge stage as the current winner of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy joined by Darren Oram from L’Oréal Professionnel, closely followed by Lydia Wolfe from Tony Wood Hair who won the Goldwell Colour Zoom Young Talent award, joined by Mark Giannandrea from Goldwell. They spoke about how these coveted titles have completely changed their careers for the better and encouraged anyone thinking of entering the competitions to take their chances and go for it!
