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!

Summer Haze to Autumn Days

From Summer Haze to Autumn Days

From our latest Autumn/Winter '17 shoot.... Change with the season by adding warmth and depth to ease you into Autumn. Coffee shades will help soften those bleached out Summer tones leaving you with a warm new style. Heading into Autumn, hair can generally look a little neglected after the Summer heat and sun, so it's always nice to tone it down slightly with some more natural shades.

L'Oreal Colour Trophy North East Regional Finals 2016

The L'Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy North East regional finals was amazing experience and we loved every second of it.

It was great to work alongside such talented hairdressers and to meet some inspirational people from the industry. Well done to all our friends from local salons that made it through to the regionals also, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

We are over the moon with the results. Alex did fantastically in the main L'Oreal Colour Trophy Award and we are so proud of Emma Church who won the Star Award category and is competing at the Grand final in London!
