New Direction for the Fellowship for British Hairdressing

You are here

Following its 75th anniversary, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing has unveiled its plans for the next 75 years to come – with new initiatives, a new direction, and new faces to lead it into the future.

With President Robert Eaton at the helm, the Fellowship is embracing the diversity of the industry, the challenges it faces, and the opportunities available with the launch of its Executive Board, Fellowship members who have come together to share ideas, inspirations, and determination to take the British hairdressing industry to new levels. Each member not only brings a wealth of experience but will also be responsible for driving the Fellowship forward.

Robert explains:

The launch of our dedicated Executive Board is about recognising the great work that has already been done, celebrating our heritage and driving the Fellowship forward in a fresh and modern way.

The Executive Board members are:

  • Robert Eaton, President
  • Ashleigh Hodges, Vice President
  • Andreas Stavrou, Chair
  • Michelle Griffin, Vice Chair
  • Karoliina Saunders, Chancellor
  • Colin McAndrew, Head of Business
  • Nick Irwin, Head of Creative
  • Simon Shaw, Head of Education
  • Ken Picton, Head of Finance
  • Barry Stephens, CEO

Rob added:

Hairdressing is an exciting career and our Executive Board want to inspire people both new to the industry and those who have worked in the industry for many years. We will be collaborating and bringing the industry together from all corners of the UK and inspiring, educating, and motivating salon owners, salon stylists, freelance independent stylists, and barbers, as well as our product houses and our press. Working together we want to reenergise the next generation and make them realise what a diverse, inclusive, and exciting industry this really is.
