“Education is the foundation upon which we build our future”
If you google ‘educational quotes’ the above always pops up near the top.
If you insert the word ‘industry’ between the last two words – it speaks directly to you as hairdressers. And it is so true – the success of our industry moving forward is dependent on the need for continual learning, whatever rung of the hairdressing ladder you are currently on.
Coincidentally our business columnist Phil Smith on page 27 expresses a very similar opinion, following the same vein, when answering one salon owner’s question to him about educating her team: “Education is the foundation of building a solid and committed team who feel engaged and fulfilled in their work.”
And this is exactly what this year’s Fellowship FAME Team have grown into – a solid and committed group under the mentorship of Gary Hooker and Michael Young and the ‘fulfilled’ fruits of their labour shine through in our FAME Team Special in association with Schwarzkopf Professional on page 48. They have spent the year learning from the best and these images are testament to what they have achieved.
