Aitch & Aitch salon group teams gathered at the West Wickham salon in Kent (UK) with a clear brief to all apprentices competing to be the ‘Student Of The Year’.
While guests enjoyed drinks and canapés, Suze Barker (Creative Team Co-ordinator) and Susanne Semmence (Salon Co-ordinator) opened the evening introducing all apprentices. Their task was to research and present an iconic hairdresser career to the audience, recreating one of their well-known looks providing evidence of their research. This included Vidal Sassoon and Leonard.
The second part of the evening the apprentices battled it out and worked on their practical skills to impress, as they presented both a female and male model. Joined and judged by UNITE Education Team Member Gary Baker, the winner was announced as Sabrina Benltaief who won the coveted trophy along with Top Shop Vouchers and a bag of hairdressing tools to match the occasion.
Salon owner James Hallahan congratulated everyone on their work on the project as he expressed: “We work in a unique industry, which shares it’s skills with everyone. There will be very few hairdressers who cannot trace their roots back to the two old Masters, Vidal Sassoon and Leonard. They changed the way people thought about hair.”
Aitch & Aitch are a luxury salon group located in Kent with two locations in Beckenham and West Wickham. The salons are both UNITE Diamond Salons.
