Step Up & Shine - What an amazing year!


Well, that is my Step Up and Shine Scholarship done and dusted… and what a year it has been!

It all started with uploading a minute long video to Instagram for my entry, explaining why I love hairdressing and what I’d want to achieve if I won the scholarship.

It was so exciting when I found out I had been invited to the president’s night in London, I never thought I’d even get through never mind win it! The whole night was fantastic, from getting all dressed up, the 3 course meal, drinks and of course being awarded my scholarship was definitely the highlight of the night and I loved that my mum and boss were there to celebrate with me.

I’ve been very busy over the last year, from a styling session at GHD, a creative colouring course at L’Oreal, a weekend at Salon International which included promoting the scholarship on the Fellowship Hair stage with Debbie G, a full week down in London at the Vidal Sassoon Academy on a cutting course and I’ve just completed my last course which was advanced colouring with Jack Howard at L’Oreal.

I think winning the scholarship has really helped me as an individual, as at the time I won it I was going through quite a challenging time personally. It has really helped boost my confidence as a hairdresser and give me the push I needed to get things done and go on courses I never really thought I’d be able to do. I’m so grateful for everything that Debbie G and everyone at the Fellowship has done for me over the last year, it’s been amazing!
