Fun to learn
Step Up & Shine Scholarship winner Ollie Vines has enjoyed a one-to-one masterclass with men’s hair expert Dale Ted Watkins.
Ollie chose the day as one of several he’s been able to take part in at no cost this year, having won a competition to win a year’s free education thanks to the Fellowship and NHF.
“I learned so much from Dale – it was an amazing opportunity,” says Ollie. “I worked on five models, practised loads of techniques and learned so many expert tips for improving my barbering skills. The session made me realise how much I didn’t know about men’s hairdressing, how detailed and difficult it can be, but also the potential it has for improving my career prospects and my confidence.”
Ollie will shortly be finishing his Step Up & Shine Scholarship year and the hunt is now on to find a worthy recipient for 2015. To apply, record a one minute video on a smart phone or recording device explaining why you love hairdressing and why you’d be a great candidate to receive a Step-Up & Shine scholarship. The deadline is January 31.
