The 12 FINALISTS took part in the CLUBSTAR ART TEAM auditions for a place in the 2022 team. In front of a panel of judges, Karoliina Saunders, Grace Dalgleish & Simon Tuckwell, the 12 finalists worked for an hour on a live model, showing their creativity, hair styling & cutting.
They then had 10 minutes to present individually to the judges their model and their mood board explaining the creative direction of the hair style.
All the judges commented that: “The standard of the applicants is extremely high this year, it was a difficult decision we had to make to choose only SIX”. “Model choices and the presentations were amazing.”
Karoliina Saunders 2021 & 2022 project leader for CLUBSTAR ART TEAM comments: “When it came to the scores it was so close, and we had a tied 6th place. So, we decided to make the team 7 in 2022! I am so looking forward to working with such a talented team in 2022”.
The judges asked questions like: “What would it mean if you got into the team?” “What does the Fellowship mean to you”. “How did you prepare for the competition”.
Zoe Leaves commented: “Fellowship was the first thing I heard when I got into the industry. It inspired my apprenticeship and my love for competitions.”
Sam Bickle commented: “My preparation starts with practicing my ideas, then I start to look at how I can change the look and the ideas just keep on evolving. I constantly look at how I can make it look different. The Fellowship means so much to me, I so want to be on the Fellowship stage, its been a dream for such a long time. I would bring 100% dedication to the team”.
Victoria Hughes comments: ”I would bring to the team, a lot of fun and laughter, and determination. I love working in the salon, but I need to step out and do something else. I would love to get more confidence to go on stage, to do photoshoots and explore teaching.”
James Farrer comments: “I would love to do more presenting and stage work. I would like to use the skills I have learnt so far to share with the team. Education is a great passion of mine, and we are encouraged to get involved as much as we can in education at Toni&Guy.”
