Sassoon Scholarship winner announced

June 26, 2019

Each year, the Sassoon Academy provides a scholarship to one lucky member of the Fellowship. Although applications are open to all, it’s a brilliant opportunity for stylists from salons with little or no education budget to be exposed to some of the most acclaimed training available in the industry.

The successful stylist enjoys a year of unparalleled education from Sassoon, providing them with a brilliant technical basis from which to grow their career. They are permitted to choose up to four separate week-long courses, meaning that education can be entirely tailored to their own career goals. They also receive a toolkit from Denman, meaning they’re fully equipped to get started.

This year saw more than 20 applicants enter for the Scholarship, with a panel of judges primed to interview them about their lives, careers and aspirations. After a day of interviews, they decided on Niamh Morris from Jason Liddiard Salon as their winner.

“I was so blown away by the amount and standard of applicants this year for the Sassoon scholarship,” says Ashleigh. “Everyone was so awesome and very deserving in their own way, and it’s always so hard for the judges to pick only one. It’s such a fantastic initiative and something that can truly develop an individual’s career as well as those around them. This year’s winner really deserves this opportunity and I can’t wait to see her grow from it.”

Congratulations Niamh, and good luck with your scholarship!
