Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing has been keeping its members close through #THEKNOWLEDGE – its series of weekly broadcasts sharing insight, inspiration, updates and education.
Now, the organisation has gone one step further, creating an inspirational video featuring more than 40 members, reassuring the industry that the Fellowship is here for support, guidance and a good old-fashioned morale boost.
Filmed from homes across the country, the Fellowship’s We Are The Fellowship video shares the feelings of uncertainty, anxiety and stress being felt by hairdressers, salon owners and freelancers across the country – but reminds Fellowship members that together as a community, we can come back stronger than ever.
Created by CS Media – who have also produced all of the Fellowship’s education content for #THEKNOWLEDGE and weekly live sessions – the video features members new and old, established and emerging, all with one message: we’re the Fellowship, and we’re in this together.
Fellowship President, Ken Picton, says: “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes for the last six weeks on content to keep our community of hairdressers inspired. We’ve had some amazing interviews with incredible hairdressers, and we want to thank every member and hairdresser who has come together to inspire us to create. We wanted to give something back that reflects who we are as hairdressers.”
Chancellor Ashleigh Hodges agrees, adding: “I’ve absolutely loved being part of #THEKNOWLEDGE, coming live to you all on a regular basis and working with Ken, Simon Shaw and the team. It’s important for us to come together as a community, and this video project really shows who we are as the Fellowship.”
Simon Shaw, Fellowship Chairperson adds: “Working on #THEKNOWLEDGE and this video project has been a sanity saver. Since our inception in 1946, we’ve always been about bringing hairdressers together from this country and around the globe, and this video encapsulates that; all of us coming together for one shared cause.”
