President's Message

Welcome to the new Fellowship for British Hairdressing's website!

Here’s a little about us and our vision… We represent the best of the hairdressing industry and have been running since 1946 with the aim of supporting, educating and sharing ideas within our profession. Our council is made up of hair professionals who give their time voluntarily and we have a great team working hard to give our members the best events. We’re focused on making a difference and welcome new members who want to benefit from our experience or contribute to nurturing our industry by sharing their knowledge and skills.

We’ve slowly been making changes, and it’s a time of huge change not just in our industry but in all the job sectors in the UK.

The Fellowship is at the forefront of working towards a positive image of our industry - we are creative, business minded, professional, and equally we have a great time.

It’s important that we get this message out there to the general public, so we can attract the next generation of hairdressers. We’re so lucky to have so many avenues open to us within our career: session work,  education, product ranges, television; we have the opportunities to travel and our skills are transferable - we can work anywhere.

The Fellowship gives us a platform to learn the skills we need to be able to venture down these avenues.

We have our F.A.M.E Team led by the amazing Nick Irwin, Colour Project with Chris Williams from Rush, Project X headed up by Kai Wan, The ClubStar Art Team led by Simon Tuckwell and our business events led by Edward Hemmings; the Fellowship is blessed to be supported by our members and our sponsors.

We are an independent organisation and by working together with salons, training academies, barbers, colourists, apprentices and all our sponsors, we can offer a united picture of an industry that is cool, professional and a no-brainer career choice. 

We want to get that message out there to the world: we are an industry that offers a world of skills and not ‘just a’ job.

2018 is already full of excitement with a packed calendar of events and amazing projects for our members to develop and grow their skills and businesses.
