Scores have been tallied and the results are in. Announcing the FAME Team finalists for 2020.
Following a record rise in entries, a panel of industry experts were tasked with scoring this year’s digital submissions before which the final 14 were ultimately decided.
Round One judges included Jack Morton (FAME Team Creative Director), Richard Kavanagh (former Australian Session Stylist of the Year, Redken Global Artist) Lauren McCowan (Creative Director, evo), David Mannah (Director, M Division) and Lauren King (Creative Director, THE JOURNAL).
Each of the selected finalists will next flock to Sydney for a live skills demonstration and model presentation on Monday 17th February. Across one day of judging, finalists will be required to present their work live before a panel of hairdressing heavyweights, drawing stimuli from three newly presented briefs.
The final outcome?
Four deserving delegates will earn their place amongst the greats, as members of the 2020 Australian FAME Team. (Look out for the announcement – as well as the naming of this year’s incredible sponsors – at this year’s Australian Hair Fashion Awards on Sunday April 19th!)
Relaunched to Australia in 2014, the FAME Team perseveres as an invaluable hairdressing discovery program and talent platform, offering life changing opportunities, mentorship and exposure to next generation hairdressers from across the nation.
A once in a life-time adventure, the year spanning program boasts a rich roster of mentor sessions, stage opportunities and photographic shoots, with each FAME group embarking on an international tour as part of their year in reign.
