President's Message

Ken PictonKen Picton President

I have been a member of the fellowship for 25 years, so it’s an absolute pleasure and privilege to be your President.  My goal is to serve with creativity and imagination; something which is just as important for me as tradition and knowledge.

The Fellowship has always been about celebrating creativity, and it is my aim to cement ourselves as the most creative hairdressing organisation globally; we certainly have the members to do it. Our projects and events are also perfectly positioned to do this and it’s no surprise that our initiatives have been looked upon and emulated across the world.  With that in mind, we must continue to evolve and lead – and I have plenty of ideas to help us do just that.

We have a wonderful new council in place, and I’m delighted to welcome Robert Eaton as the new Vice President. I have some great ideas to put into practice and I’m excited to get going on this journey for the next two years, working alongside our sponsors and members.

In this rapidly-changing world, I truly believe that we as an organisation have the perfect opportunity to shape the future of our wonderful industry – and that we have a social responsibility to make sure we do exactly that. The future belongs to those who prepare for it today, and that’s precisely what I’m planning to do with the Fellowship.

We know we have to be current and creative, but we have to do it with diversity and inclusion to all. I believe we showed this last month with our statement around the venue for our Luncheon and Awards, with regards to our show of solidarity to the human race.  We showed that we as hairdressers have a voice, and we’re willing to use it to make a difference.

So thank you for trusting in me to become your President. I hope I can use this lovely Welsh voice to help shape the fellowship and our industry. Let’s be the voice of hairdressing and shape our future together

Thank you, Ken
