In February this year I was approached by the Multi-Award Winning Hairdresser and 2013's Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year, Bruno Marc Giamattei of Marc Antoni Salons. He wanted me to shoot for the Fellowship's F.A.M.E Team 2014. After the initial briefing it was clear that this was going to be an amazing day!
The chosen four hairdressers for this year's FAME Team were; Leighanne Regan of Kyle Beasley Hairdressing, Simon Tuckwell of Zullo & Holland, Ellenora Dean of Michelle Griffin, and Dafyd Rhys-Thomas of Ken Picton Salons. On the day of the shoot these guys were on fire! I was blown away by their professionalism and talent displayed on the shoot and I can tell that they are going to go far. The results from our 2014 photo shoot are below, hope you like them!
The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence (F.A.M.E.) Team are selected annually to promote a new generation of bright young hairdressers Nominated exclusively by Fellowship members the potential team members undergo a rigorous selection process that starts with a nomination from a Member of The Fellowship and includes photographic work, a test of the candidates' ability to recreate their photographs under time pressure, a detailed CV, an in-depth interview, a haircut, a long hair assessment and a 2-minute live demonstration of their hairdressing skills onstage at Salon.
A busy and fulfilling year is organised for the F.A.M.E Team. This involves photographic shoots, media publicity, fashion shows, hairdressing seminars and events. Above all the team hone their skills and are given a unique platform to shine.
Many thanks to the Fellowship for British Hairdressing and the one and only Bruno Marc Giamattei who trusted in me to produce this years collection!
