Meet The F.A.M.E Team 2019: Ashley Cockerell
The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s F.A.M.E. Team is the ultimate experience for up-and-coming hairdressing talent, today we’re introducing the last member in this year’s team, Ashley Cockerell of Percy & Reed.
What are you most excited about for your year on the team?
The opportunity to represent myself, the Fellowship and the team on platforms both nationally and globally. I’m also looking forward to developing new skills, and sharing them with the team.
What do you want to improve at over the next 12 months?
I want to improve my craft, but also learn new skills in avenues of the industry that I haven’t had the opportunity to explore yet. I also want to improve myself, so that I can really make the most of my time on the team.
Why did you want to be on the F.A.M.E. Team?
I wanted a platform to accelerate my career, which only the F.A.M.E. Team can do. I also wanted to have the opportunity to learn new skills on the session side of the industry.
Who do you admire most in the hairdressing industry?
One person I truly admire in the industry is Gary Gill. I love the simplicity of his work and his ability to create hair that is so strong but yet so understated.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by the underground movements that are glamorised. For example, garage music, urban fashion, graffiti, Dazed and i-D magazine and their rebellious movements.
