Emerging hairdressers – we have big news. Entries are open for the 2017 F.A.M.E. Team, also known as the potential launch pad that could build your artistic career. The F.A.M.E. Team (an acronym for The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence, also our favourite musical and the superstardom that awaits you) has been a facet of the Australian industry since 2014, when it was brought over from the Fellowship for British Hairdressing in the UK. Since then, a handful of select hairdressers have benefited from the opportunities it presents – and in 2017 four more will do the same.
The F.A.M.E. Team provides access to career development opportunities such as international networking, global stage presentation, editorial shoots, media publicity, runway experience, education, profile development and more – for a full year. Highlights include travel, working with world-renowned hairdressing names and a stint on the Hair Expo Main Stage.
Entries are now open for ambitious contenders, and close on December 9. Entrants can start by checking out the entry kit here. They must be nominated by their salon owner or manager and be at least 18 years old and under the age of 35. The entry form will include a biography, feature image and short essay explaining why you should be in the F.AM.E. Team. Finalists will be announced in January of next year and, after a live skills test in February, the four winners will be announced as always at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards.
“The FAME team remains the ultimate platform where you can hone your hairdressing skills with some of the best names in the Australian and British hairdressing industries. It really is a year of opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else,” enthused FAME Team Creative Director Brett McKinnon.
Time to take that shot.
