The vibe at the Fellowship for British Hairdressing Luncheon & Awards is hard to describe other than saying it’s a proper end of term bash which gathers excitement as it proceeds… until many fall over with exhaustion, or drink! But despite the sore heads, it’s fun, loving and a fabulous party. Here are the best 5 pictures to share which show the atmosphere we think and whet your appetite to find out more:
It’s not Christmas until the Fellowship for British Hairdressing Luncheon. There, we said it. So adorning our sassiest ensemble we headed to the glittering Dorchester Hotel on London’s Park Lane to celebrate with the best in the business. And pick up a Salutation Award, Whoop, whoop!
Above and beyond
Of course it serves as a fitting tribute to Fellowship members who have gone above and beyond during the last 12 months, but come on, we all know it’s the perfect excuse to get the industry together and celebrate ahead of the busy Christmas season. Guests included the likes of hair genius Angelo Seminara, industry legend Errol Douglas and worthy winner of the incredible Image of the Year 2018 (pictured above) Robert Masciave.
Aside from the flowing prosecco, sparkling chandeliers and glamorous outfits, we were delighted to see Fellowship Chancellor (President Elect for 2019), our Welsh favourite Ken Picton hosting.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as TONI&GUY Global Creative Director, Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck gave a moving tribute to her father, the late Toni Mascolo. And Wahl founder and Chairman, Brian Hollands was also remembered for the support he and his company provided to the Fellowship over the years.
Looking to the future too, the 2019 F.A.M.E. Team members were announced. Introducing, Alastair Jubbs, VAE Hair; Ashley Cockrell, Percy & Reed;
Lora Griffin, Simon Webster and Tania Faenza, TONI&GUY. Congrats guys, we’re expecting great things.
