21 hopefuls presented their work to judges Simon Tuckwell, Debbie G and Fellowship Vice Chancellor Michelle Griffin at the ClubStar Art Team auditions. This sought-after education programme is aimed at hairdressers between the ages of 16-25 and is the first port of call for any young, passionate and aspiring hairdresser.
It’s the perfect platform for the industry’s next generation to step up and start really experiencing the industry and expanding their skill set.
The application process began back in June, with entrants submitting an online application form and uploading a short video to Instagram summarising why they should be in the team. 21 applicants were then invited to the auditions. The chosen final eight team members will be mentored by Simon Tuckwell in 2018, spending a year immersing themselves in fantastic mentoring days with top name industry experts, developing their salon and personal skills.
It was an amazing day, says judge, Michelle Griffin, very inspirational for us all! All of the young ClubStar members that took part showed fantastic creativity.
Mentor Simon Tuckwell says,
This was my second year of mentoring the ClubStar Art Team and the auditions were something else this time around – hence why we just couldn’t whittle it down to six and went for eight instead - which is a first!
We have a real varied mix of skills and strengths in this team and all of them were incredibly confident and passionate about their work in the industry. I have a fantastic year planned for them and I can’t wait to get started!
