The Fellowship’s President Night on Monday 8th May provided the setting for 18-year-old Evie Scrowston from Hays Salon in Hull to be crowned the winner of 2017’s Step Up & Shine programme.
In association with the NHF and the Fellowship, the programme was launched in honour of industry legend Christopher Man and is now in its fourth year.
Entrants were asked to submit a 60 second video to Instagram explaining why they would be the perfect candidate to win the scholarship. Evie was selected for her desire and passion to learn and improve her skills.
She has won a year-long £2500 bespoke education programme which will be led by renowned hairdressing educator Debbie G. Debbie will provide Evie with constant support to ensure that the Step Up & Shine mentoring enhances and develops her career.
To present the prestigious award NHF President Agnes Leonard took to the stage and announced Evie’s name. Evie commented: “Hearing my name being called was incredible. It’s such an honour to be a part of this year’s Step Up & Shine, so I couldn’t be more excited to embark on this year-long journey and to the career prospects it will bring. I wan to thank the Fellowship and the NHF for this once in a lifetime opportunity!”
