The Fellowship for British Hairdressing celebrated 75 years and honoured a multitude of award recipients at a luncheon in London, with Australia’s own Jacky Chan from Oscar Oscar Chadstone winning the inaugural International Image Award.

Alongside a host of hairdressing luminaries, including now two-time Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year Errol Douglas MBE, Jacky’s name was added to a list of skilled award winners.

“We are aware every day of the incredible imagery and talent that is on offer around the world and we are delighted to launch our International Image Award for hairdressers to showcase their favourite images from their portfolio and enter this prestigious award,” explained Chancellor Ashleigh Hodges in launching the award.

The luncheon hosted 420 guests at The Londoner in Leicester Square, as pioneered by Ashleigh and President Ken Picton. It included a three course meal and plenty of inspiring presentations.

“We have faced the worst, but we came out as the best,” Ken said. “What doesn’t challenge you doesn’t change you and we have embraced the changes while living by our core values.”

The event saw speeches from Chairman Barry Stephens, who honoured those the industry has lost and presented a cheque of £3,720 to the Hair & Beauty Charity for money raised through the special 2021 Yearbook, while F.A.M.E. Team leaders and hair icons Gary Hooker and Michael Young unveiled the next generation of talents.
