F.A.M.E. Team shoot with Hooker & Young, 25.9.17

The Fellowship’s lucky F.A.M.E. Team headed up to Newcastle recently for a laid-back and relaxed photo-shoot with iconic hairdressing duo Hooker & Young at their beautiful home.

Gary and Michael, keen to give the F.A.M.E. Team a different kind of shoot experience, organised four local models, a clothes stylist, make-up artist and assistant, whilst Michael himself manned the camera to make good use of his photography skills. The idea behind the day was to put the competitiveness of hairdressing to one side and to work as a team. They helped each other along, all working as one on all four models as oppose to taking ownership of any one look.

The concept for the shoot was ‘Dark Romance’. The looks were feminine, beautiful and strong, with the models rocking ethereal, textured and beautiful hair, coupled with elegant styling and sultry make-up.

The team even had the chance to quiz Gary and Michael about their careers from start to finish, their highlights, their past collections and their top advice for making it to the top of your game. Gary and Michael showed the team a montage of their hair work, from across 25 years of success, sharing wonderful stories and industry tips along the way.

Team member Jordanna Cobella from Cobella Hair says, “We all left our day with Hooker & Young feeling so inspired, motivated and lucky to have experienced such a personal day in Newcastle with them. Thank you to the shoot team and of course to Gary and Michael who generously donated so much time and effort to us!”

“It was a real thrill to work with the F.A.M.E. Team. We’ve always had a passion for nurturing young talent and helping them achieve their goals so we certainly enjoyed the day as much as the team did!” say Gary and Michael.
