MARTYN HOLMES

Staging & Exhibition Manager

My Role in The Fellowship
As Staging & Exhibitions Manager I am responsible for organising and finalising the stage build for our Salon International and PRO Hair Live shows.

My Industry background
I started my career in 1984 where I trained locally in Essex. After buying my first salon, and working alongside Lee Stafford I went on to open my salon Strangeways in 2001. I am proud to be an industry educator, including Fellowship events and for Wella, as well as being very honoured to have won several awards.

What does being part of The Fellowship mean to me?
The Fellowship is very close to my heart and I considered it the ‘gang of all gangs’. I believe in keeping the industry flag flying and I want to share my knowledge with others. It is what I find rewarding and what I love – plus I get to rub shoulders with the greatest hairdressers!

Something people might not know about me
I am obsessed with fishing – and I love to get in my boat and head out into the ocean with my thoughts and go fishing!
