Schwarzkopf Professional is proud to reveal its Young Artistic Team for 2022, who will embark on a year-long mentoring programme, offering training, education and incredible industry opportunities, designed to nurture and develop the stars of the future.
The Schwarzkopf Professional Young Artistic Team is now in its 26th year. It brings together some of the most exciting emerging hairdressing talent from all over the UK and Ireland. It is open to stylists under the age of 26 who work for a Schwarzkopf Professional salon. this year’s line-up was revealed at the finals at London’s Hunter Collective on Sunday 23rd January, when a shortlist of stylists competed for a place in the final six. The winners impressed judges including Nick Irwin, Ellie Bond and Debbie G with their presentation skills, attention to detail and obvious passion for their craft.
With a packed calendar of activity planned, there was no time to spare! The team’s first day took place on 7th February, at the penthouse studio of legendary photographer Rankin. Hosted by new YAT Team Mentor (and Rankin’s long-time collaborator) Nick Irwin, the day was the chance for the stylists to get to know each other – as well as to discover more about the journey that lies ahead of them.
Creating Life-Changing Moments
‘We have six young, diverse and also passionate individuals who are itching to start!’ said Nick. ‘For me, it’s as much about the experience as it is what we teach them throughout the year. Holding our intro day at Rankin’s penthouse gave them the chance to experience my world as much as possible so we can create not just career, but life-changing moments.’ Caitlin Trenholme from Salon 3, Isle of Man added: ‘This opportunity means everything – it was the next step I was looking for in my career. Making the team has given me that spark and inner confidence to progress my hairdressing further.’
