The setting for day was the inspiring surroundings of Anthony and Pat Mascolo’s Library Space on Battersea Park Road in London. Nick shared the news that the team will be following in the footsteps of 2017’s team, and heading across the world to Melbourne in Australia for Hair Expo with BaByliss PRO. The team were also lucky enough to be gifted any stylists dream – a huge bundle of products and tools to help them with their creations throughout the year and beyond.
Team member Paddy McDougall from Rainbow Room International says, “It’s great to have this support and I can’t wait for the opportunity we have been given. Our first day was awesome.”
The day ended with an invitation from Fellowship President Karine Jackson to the Basquiat exhibition at the Barbican, for a healthy dose of inspiration, getting the F.A.M.E. Team journey off to the perfect start.
“Our first day blew my mind,” says team member Peter Mellon from Medusa Hairdressing, “I loved spending the day with such creative and inspiring people. This year is going to push us as a team to produce the kind of work that we have never produced before, whilst being mentored by some of the most influential stylists in our industry. Australia, here we come!”
Mentor Nick Irwin says, “It was great to finally meet my new F.A.M.E. Team for 2018 and spend the day getting to know them. Their energy levels were fantastic, and I truly believe that we have an incredible year ahead of us. I was so excited to share details of some of the brilliant things we have planned for them, including amazing education days and the trip of a lifetime to Australia for Hair Expo in June! Massive thanks to Anthony and Pat Mascolo for the use of their inspiring Library Space.”
