KEN PICTON

Chancellor & Scholarship

My role in the Fellowship
I am a council member but also a Project Leader for The Fellowship Scholarship.
 
My industry background
You could say a local boy done good - I was born in wales but have worked across the globe representing some of the world’s  top brands. I opened my first  salon when I was 21 years old, and I currently head up my  destination salon in Wales as well as leading shows and seminars in front of thousands, working backstage on fashion shows and producing imagery that’s seen around the world. The salon also looks after the cast of Casualty, Doctor Who (including Catherine Tate), Gavin & Stacey (including Ruth Jones) and a host of other presenters, actresses and actors, and has worked on LFW shows (Vivienne Westwood, Ashish.) We also look after various sportsmen in Wales across rugby, football and ice hockey (the salon is an official partner for the Cardiff Devils and Cardiff city FC).
 
What does being part of The Fellowship mean to me?
I have been a member for over 20 years and I still just as proud as I was to say I am part of this fantastic club within the industry. The Fellowship continues to drive hairdressers within the industry and keeps British hairdressing at the top!
 
Something people might not know about me.
I am a children’s football coach in my spare time – which I love!
