Fellowship Projects for 2020 Announced

December 13, 2019

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Project members have been announced for 2020 – with new names and new Project Leaders!

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing provides unrivalled opportunities for its members to grow, develop and upskill under its various projects – which have a new look, and new leaders, for 2020.

The F.A.M.E. Team remains the pinnacle of achievement for Fellowship members, with an exhaustive list of former teammates who have gone on to transform the British hairdressing landscape.

For 2020, the team has a new leader; Jamie Stevens. With experience as a salon owner, session stylist, educator, brand ambassador and industry personality, there’s very little that Jamie doesn’t know about the industry – and as a former F.A.M.E. Team member himself, he has incredible insight into the Fellowship.
