Whats Going on

Fellowship Teams now open for entry!

October 17, 2019

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s acclaimed Colour Project and Project X teams are both now open for 2020 entries. A place on either team is a transformative experience for any hairdresser, with an enviable calendar of events, education and opportunities.


The Colour Project

Being part of the Colour Project provides an incredible opportunity for colourists seeking to grow their career, with 12 months of mentoring, education, events and opportunities.

The Colour Project is the hairdressing industry’s first colour-specific annual programme, which provides access to the artistry of some of the industry’s finest colourists – without the restraints of being allied to any one product manufacturer.

Over the course of a year, a stellar lineup of leading colourists provide up-close and personal education, allowing team members to benefit from insightful tips and advice to take their colouring skills to a new level and boost their salon turnover.

The Colour Project also incorporates live events, stage time and a photoshoot; with this year’s shoot, mentored by Robert Eaton, achieving magazine front covers and coverage in industry magazines across the globe.

Project leader Paul Dennison brings a wealth of expertise to the programme, as a multi-award-winning colourist in his own right.

As team leader, Paul not only brings his own insight but also opens up his address book of acclaimed industry contacts, for an incredible lineup of educators. Mentors over the last twelve months have included Angelo Seminara, Robert Eaton, Jack Howard, Siobhan Jones, the Not Another Salon team, Chris Williams, Brooks & Brooks and presentation skills with Simon Shaw.


Project X

Project X is open to any hairdresser who has completed their basic training – meaning there’s no upper age limit. Members of the team enjoy 12 months of amazing opportunities and insight from a diverse calendar of mentors, topping up your education for the ultimate hairdressing ‘finishing school’.

For 2020, the team will be led by a new pair of hands – Angelo Vallillo. Now owner of the acclaimed DNA Art Space hybrid salon studio, Angelo will be bringing an award-winning combination of salon and session experience to the team.

Areas covered during the Project X year include media awareness, training your eye, session work, presentation skills and show work. A photoshoots with a top photographer, directed by a legendary hairdresser is also included.

The 2019 team’s year was action-packed with education days from: Edward Hemmings, HAIRDOTCOM, the Sassoon Academy, Ashley Gamble, Robert Masciave, Bruno Marc, Angelo Vallillo and Sam Burnett.
