The semi-finalists for the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s prestigious F.A.M.E. Team have been chosen following a rigorous judging process.
The panel of incredible judges for 2023 include the best of British Hairdressing, who are judging the first and second rounds through the year, led by British Hairdresser of the Year and President, Robert Eaton – Ashleigh Hodges, Ken Picton, Errol Douglas, Sally Brooks, Nick Irwin, Carolyn Newman, Michelle Thompson, Harriet Stokes, Simon Tuckwell, Jacqui McIntosh, Andy Heasman, Ellie Bond, Lisa Farrall and Karine Jackson.
The semi-finalists will take part in a special day on 22 August, where they will be invited to present a moodboard that represents their first look, Colour and Cut, while the afternoon will see them create a look on Afro/textured hair. The finalists will then be split into teams where they will have two hours to create a show with their models for the audience and judges.
