The LEAP Ahead Team 2015-16

Wednesday, 22 July 2015 16:04

LEAP Ahead is Schwarzkopf Professional’s training programme, which is now into its second year. A brand new team of talented and passionate hairdressers have been selected and they are ready to take probably their greatest career step!

The five winners were selected after submitting online entry forms where they sold themselves and their passion for hairdressing. Successful applicants were then invited to an interview at the London ASK Academy to introduce themselves to a panel of independent industry judges and win them over face-to-face.

The LEAP Ahead programme is designed for stylists aged between 25-35 who are no longer eligible to enter into the Schwarzkopf Professional YAT team or be considered for the Fellowship’s F.A.M.E or ClubStar teams. For someone entering the industry a little later who has not had the advantage of being in a young training programme or even who have already graduated from the YAT, F.A.M.E or ClubStar teams, the LEAP Ahead team is the perfect next step. 

The 2015-16 LEAP Ahead team can look forward to exciting opportunities such as their very own photoshoot, training from Schwarzkopf’s renown ambassadors, invitations to industry events, introductions to key hairdressing press and a wealth of educating sessions. They will be led for the year by LEAP Ahead team managers, Jamie Farrar and Catherine Adams.

Jamie commented: “The 2015-16 LEAP Ahead team are a highly talented mix of hairdressers, all bringing their own unique talents and skills to the table. They have a superb year ahead of them working with some of the industry’s icons and of course, their very own photoshoot which will be a culmination of all the years learning put into action.”

The new LEAP Ahead team are:

Chantal McAuliffe: Rainbow Room International, Glasgow

Gregor Brown: John Gillespie, Perth

Hannah Macklin: KJM, Fleet

Raj Sethi: Barrie Stephen Hair, Leicester

Lauren Tudor: En Route, Wakefield


  • (L-R) Chantal McAuliffe, Gregor Brown, Hannah Macklin, Raj Sethi & Lauren Tudor
