Fellowship Spotlights New Talent

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Spotlight made its debut this week, with a host of new up-and-coming names presenting to a virtual audience.

Hosted by President Ken Picton and ClubStar artistic team leader, Karoliina Saunders, the evening saw eight hopefuls present a four-minute show to not just a virtual audience around the world, but a panel of esteemed ‘spies in the skies.’

The panel – which would later offer feedback on their presentation skills, creativity and on- trend looks – included Errol Douglas MBE, Nick Irwin, Karine Jackson, Jonathan Andrew, Robert Masciave and Bruno Giamattei.

Spotlight replaces the ever-popular Member’s Night and also saw special interviews with Manchester salon owner Melissa Timperley and Fellowship Hairdressers of the Year, Gary Hooker and Michael Young.

While Darrel Starkey presented vivid colour, Victoria Hughes talked through her 60s-vibe mood boards. Jet Hairdressing showcased their avant-garde work on life-size mannequins.

The eight presenting teams were:

Vicky Leavey, Vicky Leavey Hair,

Tammy Reynolds, Tammy Reynolds for Hair

Chelsey Stone, The Hair School

Amy Christie, The Gym

Victoria Hughes, Melissa Timperley Salons, Manchester

Stacie Woodford-Jennings, JET Hairdressing Academy

Vivienne Johns, The Hairdressers Social Club

Darrel Starkey-Gettings, Taylor’s Hair Studio
