News added 14/12/17: Stalwarts of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing were honoured this month, making it a very proud Christmas for some of the most hard-working people in our industry. We’re happy to hear that Errol Douglas received Patron of Honour – only three before have collected such an award including Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbie MBE and Ann Herman – and rightly so for his dedication to hairdressing. The award recognises Errol’s continued commitment to the Fellowship – hairdressing’s most respected organisation. Fellowship President Karine Jackson commented on Errol’s unwavering passion and steadfast loyalty, both in the UK and on the international stage.
As a former President of the Fellowship himself and the recipient of countless awards, Errol is already one of the most renowned names in hairdressing. This title confirms his position as an influencer, educator and all-round role model for the industry.
The presentation was hosted by a new Fellowship line-up of Chancellor Ken Picton, President Karine Jackson and Chairman Jo Martin. Jamie Stevens was announced Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year – congratulations.
News added 05/12/16: At the Dorchester Hotel in London today, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing marked 70 years with its annual luncheon and awards – with 450 guests gathering to do so. The mission was to celebrate the achievements of the year and to present awards to the companies, project leaders and individuals who really shone in 2016 with their efforts and contributions to the Fellowship. Hosted by chancellor Karine Jackson, president Bruno Marc, and chairperson Jo Martin, there was much applause for the many award recipients, not least Charlie Miller OBE who received a Lifetime Achievement award, and Edward Darley (at Sassoon Academy), the award of Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year. The FAME Team for 2017 was announced as: Gavin McIntyre at G&E McIntyres; James Earnshaw at Francesco Group; Jordanna Cobella at Cobella; and Ria Kulik at The Hairbank.
