A Fellowship Members Night is one of the most popular events in the Fellowship calendar. Now they are also going on the road, with the first stop in Edinburgh.
This Fellowship Members Night in Edinburgh this week saw some seven teams present on stage to an audience of more than 80 hairdressers, who travelled across Scotland to attend the event.
Hosts were the team at Medusa Hairdressing Academy in Edinburgh, in association with Wella Professionals. The evening saw teams present their latest collections, techniques as well as trends, sharing their colouring and styling secrets.
Special Guest Caroline Sanderson
Scottish Hairdresser of the year Caroline Sanderson was the special guest. She also talked about her journey to the top.
Colin McAndrew, owner of Medusa Academy, said: “What a night – we absolutely loved having the Fellowship in Scotland and the fact that tickets sold out in a few days also shows how Scottish hairdressers are looking for creativity and inspiration. It was great to get everyone together under one roof and also to see the high quality of hairdressing on display.”
Fellowship Chair Barry Stephens, added: “Throughout 2022 we are taking our Members Night on the road, visiting Manchester later this month, followed by Cardiff and Belfast in May, Brighton in June, London in September and Birmingham in November. We want to take creativity and opportunity to those who can’t always attend events in London and the response we have had is that hairdressers around the country are screaming out for live, educational as well as inspirational events.”
