Following a successful debut year, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing is bringing their men’s hairdressing team back for 2020.
Initially launched as the Barber Project, the new-look program is now called PROJECT: Man and promises to include even more insight and expertise into all aspects of men’s hairdressing, barbering and shaving. The 2019 team enjoyed an incredible year of mentoring and expertise from a diverse line-up of guest mentors including Edward Hemmings from Alan D (founding Team Leader), Matt Gavin from Ruffians, Johnny Shanahan from Barber Barber, Andrea Raymond from Wahl, Dan and Robert Rix from The Company of Master Barbers, and Hayden Cassidy from Andis. As well as this enviable role call of educators, the group also benefited from the expertise of Team Leader, Jonathan Andrew.
Topics covered over the 12-month period include switching from hairdresser to barber, barbering trends, long and short cuts, clipper work, blends and skin fades, beard grooming and shaping and working with diverse textures. The team also gained insight into photoshoot work and stage presentations, with a debut appearance as a team live at Salon International. PROJECT: Man 2020 will include a similar calendar of insightful mentoring days and opportunities, perfect for furthering technical skills, gaining confidence and boosting salon business.
Team Leader Jonathan Andrew says:
I am honoured to become project leader for PROJECT: Man. Men’s hair is something I am very passionate about and there are countless incredible avenues to explore from the salon to the stage. This is going to be a jam-packed year full of things I only wish I could have had when I was starting out.
