Step Up and SHINE Scholarship Finalists Announced

Friday, 13 March 2020 16:08

Each year, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing partners with the National Hair & Beauty Federation to award one lucky hairdresser with the Step Up and SHINE Scholarship.

Launched in memory of the late, great British hairdresser – and passionate supporter of education – Christofer Mann, the Step Up & SHINE Scholarship provides a bespoke year of education opportunities. 

One hairdresser – of any level of experience, age, or location – is awarded £2,500 to cover tuition fees for any hairdressing courses of their choice, as well as travel and expenses. Too much choice can be overwhelming, which is why the scholarship also comes with its very own mentor, in the form of industry legend, Debbie G. She helps each winner create their own bespoke education package, for the perfect year of education.

After receiving a huge amount of entries the judges had the difficult task of choosing just six finalists, so huge congratulations go to the 2020 finalists:

Stacey Orrow, The Colour Room, Letchworth

Holly Prior, Silhouette du Barry, Chelmsford

Vicki Johnson, Vicki Hoskin Hair Artistry, Wadebridge

Anita Patkos, Farah-Naz Hairdressing, Prestwich

Lewis Wilson, Wilsons Hairdressing, Macclesfield

Jill Hendry, Little Bird Hair Design, Woodston, Peterborough


The shortlist will now be visited at their salons where the judges will observe them working before making their final choice, which will be announced at the Fellowship President’s Night.
