Sebastian Professional Cult Team 2018 Revealed
A group of six inspiring and creative hairdressers have been chosen to form the new Sebastian Professional Cult Team for 2018. This dynamic team had to go through an audition process which began with an online entry.
About The Process
The team is open to stylists who have completed Sebastian’s highly acclaimed and intense MOB Programme. Following the initial online application round, 20 applicants were then selected to attend a live audition in either the Wella World Studios in London and Dublin. As you would expect from an initiative pioneered by such an iconic styling range, the emphasis was all about styling at its finest; and styling at its finest is exactly what was delivered. “We were incredibly impressed by the standard of entries this year. This is a great opportunity for any stylist who wants to further their career and I have extremely high hopes for our final team,” said Sebastian Professional UK Brand Ambassador, Dom Capel.
Guest judges included International & UK Sebastian Art Team member, Angelo Vallillo as well as Dom Capel and Sebastian management team members. Each finalist had two hours to create a truly show-stopping look, demonstrating their styling expertise and hairdressing mastery. In addition, they were judged on their presentation skills and potential platform ability.
The Fabulous Team Of Six Are:
- Mary Geoghegan, KH Hair, Nottingham
- Johnny Cambell, FG Group Streetly
- Jenny Addyman, Joseph Ferraro, Harrogate
- Carlo Avena, HOB Salons
- Notty Luanthamakun, Blue, York
- Alejandro Gerdez, Queen, Dublin
Now the search for the 2018 Cult team is over, this group of budding stars will experience an incredible 18-month mentoring programme. This will enable each member to experience different types of hairdressing education to further their careers. They can expect around 15 days of mentoring from industry leaders, covering topics such as photographic skills, wig making, media training, creative hairdressing skills, platform hairdressing insights, product knowledge, presentation guidance and session hairdressing. The programme will include opportunities to represent Sebastian live on stage and spend valuable time with some of Sebastian’s leading artists & industry mentors, including International & UK Art Team member, Angelo Vallillo; UK Sebastian Artist, Joseph Ferraro and UK Sebastian Brand Ambassador, Dom Capel.
With an exciting and action-packed schedule lined up for 2018/9, it is most definitely a case of ‘watch this space’ for the future hairdressing stars of tomorrow embarking on their Cult Team journey. To stay up to date follow @sebastiancult on Twitter here.
