The Programme offers selected candidates the unique opportunity to work closely with founders Kelly Furnival and Meg Piper to receive invaluable guidance as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey.

Meg Piper, founder of Solstice Hair Studio, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the Solstice Graduate Programme. At Solstice Hair Studio, we firmly believe in the potential and talent of the next generation. Our programme is designed to provide aspiring hair professionals with the essential tools, mentorship, and support to help them thrive in the industry.”
