The Australian Hair Fashion Awards are this very weekend, and with that the highly anticipated 2019 FAME Team will be announced. In preparation, the dynamic platform, which gives the education and editorial experience of a lifetime to four talented and emerging hairdressers each year, has announced their new partnerships.
Centred on offering top-tier career progression to the future stars of our industry, the platform has smartly aligned with brands that also push the hair industry forward, with established and emerging brands that speak to the competition’s dually local and global presence.
The FAME Team will partner with KELA as their first ever hair accessory brand, joining with an Aussie label that is pioneering in this field and making their product essential in modern weddings, festivals, celebrity events and everyday wear. They will also join Joico who will be the colour and wet line sponsor for the team, speaking to their education-focused brand mentality to enrich the program for the team members.
“JOICO have always supported the next generation of industry talent and our new partnership with the FAME Team allows us to continue to do so in an exciting new way,” said Kylie McLeod, Marketing Director, Sabre Corporation.” These up and coming tastemakers are the ideal team to showcase the capabilities of our professional colour ranges to the industry, thanks to their unique personalities and individual styles. We look forward to getting started and helping guide and inspire FAME Team 2019.”
“We are beyond excited to be partnering with the Australian FAME Team in 2019; unarguably the most influential discovery program in the hair industry,” added Janna Miccio, Brand and Marketing Manager for KELA Hair Jewellery .” Hair and Fashion play a pivotal role in each others’ worlds and as leaders in hair fashion innovation we are thrilled to be the first accessory brand to partner with such an inspiring industry initiative. KELA will provide a new dimension for the FAME Team and a fresh source of inspiration. We can’t wait to see this talented team get creative and showcase our product portfolio over the coming year.”
Whoever wins, the FAME Team is set for another innovative and unforgettable year. Our fingers are crossed for all the finalists!
