If you have said yes to these questions and you are under 35 then there’s only one direction in the hairdressing industry you need to be looking, and that’s towards the Australian FAME Team!

So, what’s it all about? FAME is not about fame it stands for The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence and was launched by the Fellowship for British Hairdressing in the UK as an opportunity for young hairdressers to access training and education beyond their wildest dreams.

It was brought to Australia and relaunched into an exciting, inspirational and totally unique format five years ago.

The FAME Team is a group of four super-talented individuals chosen every year to receive life-changing opportunities, mentorship, education and travel, allowing them to experience the best that this incredible industry of ours has to offer, both here and in Europe, learning new skills, building incredible contacts and forging friendships like no other..

What do I get if I get a place? It’s really impossible to quantify! A place on the team provides access to career development with some of the most significant names in the hairdressing industry, both here and in the UK.

Past mentors have included Renya Xydis, Richard Kavanagh, Laren McCowan, Jules Tognini. Craig Smith and Damien Rinaldo in Australia and in the UK, Trevor Sorbie, Angelo Seminara, Zoe Irwin, Tyler Johnston, Adam Reed and Sassoons to name but a few.

Stage opportunities abound thanks to Hair Expo and Salon International and the generosity of our sponsors, La Biosthetique, evo, Great Lengths and Cloud 9 means that a world of new product knowledge, fashion shows and photographic opportunities are opened up.

Selection is based on the individual merit of each entrant no matter the salon, state or brand affiliation.

FAME Team Creative Director Jack Morton says “FAME team is nothing short of life-changing! If you are lucky enough to hear your name called out at the AHFA’s, you will experience one of the best years of your career. The people you’ll meet, the places you’ll go and the boost to your skill set will just blow you away.  There’s really nothing quite like FAME!”

David Mannah, Creative Director of M Division adds “The Australian FAME team is really a money-can’t-buy opportunity. When you look at the calibre of people who don’t hesitate to give their time to work with us… all unpaid and out of the goodness of their hearts, it really is quite overwhelming! The contacts you will make and the skills you will learn have the potential to be career defining, so guys, do the right thing! If you don’t try you’ll never know….”
