UK hairdressing institution The Fellowship of Hair Artists of Great Britain is celebrating the major milestone of 75 years in 2021.

The initiative launched in 1946 by Benjamin Neil Furman and Riche of Hay Hill as a forum for hairdressers to meet regularly, showcase their work and network with the community. 75 years on it continues to evolve and support the industry with these core values, and a new special Yearbook will honour that legacy.

“The Fellowship is the heartbeat of the industry and our coffee table book is going to be a must-read for all hairdressers,” said Fellowship President, Ken Picton. “As an organisation we are dedicated to offering creativity and opportunity to all – regardless of experience, job title or qualifications. We have set the standards over the past 75 years and will continue to do so for 75 more, and already have some exciting plans in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share with you.”

The glossy, coffee-table book looks at the last 75 years of the hairdressing industry, including trends and prolific people who defined that time and shaped the modern landscape of hair, especially in the UK. The book will also look ahead to the future of the industry and how the Fellowship innovates and offers opportunities in this sphere.

The book will be available online and at the UK’s Salon International. Here’s to the next 75 years!
