Jamie's industry background
Jamie worked at his mum’s salon in Somerset before moving to London where he worked with the likes of Daniel Hersheson, Beverley C and Errol Douglas while making a name for himself as the young hairdresser to watch.
Now the owner of two salons (London and Surrey), Jamie has worked with celebrities from Kylie Minogue, Elle Macpherson, Eva Herzigova and Myleene Klass to Leonardo di Caprio, Christian Slater, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant and Olly Murs. Jamie has appeared on TV shows including Lorraine (where he’s resident hairdresser), This Morning, Gok’s Fashion Fix, How to Look Good Naked, and The X Factor, sharing his tips and tricks of the hair industry alongside cutting and styling hair. He was the youngest nominee for British Hairdresser of the Year and won the British Hairdressing Awards Men’s Hairdresser of the Year Award three times to enter into the BHA’s Hall of Fame.
Jamie aimed to excel in all areas of hairdressing across cut, colour, men’s, afro, wigs, and as such he has an incredibly well rounded knowledge of all things hair. He joined L’Oreal Professionnel as Global Ambassador in 2018 and is Hot Tools® Professional European Creative Director. His own product range, MR. Jamie Stevens, is specifically designed for men with thinning hair and a best seller in Boots.
Jamie has always been a passionate advocate of the hair industry and through mentoring his own team has produced a number of award winning stylists, including this year’s BHA Newcomer of the Year. He is a former Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year.
What does being part of The Fellowship mean to me?
The Fellowship has always played such a huge part in my industry life and being a member of the F.A.M.E. team actually helped me to launch my own career, so to be asked to be the Project Leader for The F.A.M.E Team feels really special, I know exactly what it means to them. I also met my wife Megan through the F.A.M.E. team!
Something people might not know about me…
I was born into a family of two great loves: football and hairdressing. My father was a professional footballer, while my mother, grandmother and great-grandfather were all hairdressers. Growing up, I would help out my mum in the salon, alongside playing football. When I was 16, I injured my ankle, which meant I was unable to pursue my dream of Premiership glory. My other passion was hairdressing so I didn’t waste any time and went straight to college and achieved my Levels 1,2 and 3.
