This year I had the pleasure of meeting and working with one of the hair industry's rising stars, Angelo Vallillo from Zullo and Holland in Nottingham. After completing his latest collection, he was ecstatic to find out that having entered the collection into the British Hairdressing Awards for the first time, he had not only made it through to the final six salons representing the Eastern region, but also got a front cover on Hairdressers Journal magazine! Angelo's sensational collection was published in the 18-24th November issue, and can be seen below.
"Hairdressing isn’t just a job for me, or even a career. It is my life and my hobby – I live and breathe it. To be a great educator and to take others with you, I believe you must radiate your love and commitment to the craft. No one could question my commitment or my obsession with hairdressing. In just eight years I’ve won awards, been part of the inaugural and brilliant Sebastian CULT Team, worked backstage at major catwalk shows, presented on stage, been in demand as an freelance Sebastian educator and been recognised by some major names in the industry. Last year, Akin Konizi named me publicly in Hairdressers Journal as the next rising star. This year I have been shortlisted as One To Watch in the prestigious Creative Head IT Awards. I continue to work tirelessly towards my goal of becoming the best hairdresser I can be and embrace every opportunity to participate and contribute to the advancement of the profession."
