Your exclusive peek inside the 2023 FAME Team’s once-in-a-lifetime, money-can’t-buy UK Tour is waiting for you here!

Whilst there is no such thing as a dull moment in the annual FAME Team calendar, there is one key moment that never fails to spark excitement in our talented troupe each and every year – packing up their kits, letting go of all expectations and preparing for a whirlwind trip abroad to learn from the very best that our industry has to offer.

From getting their hands on cutting-edge tech through to hair shows in underground clubs, lessons from runway regulars and even a stint at Salon International, you won’t believe what our talented Class of ‘23 – Karlie Roberts, Claudia Cataldo, Georgina Bools and Sheridan Rose Shaw – got up to in London town.

But don’t just take our word for it! Pack your bags, grab your passports and prepare for Destination Inspiration as we recap the incredible journey that was. Your first class ticket alongside the FAME Team on their UK Tour is waiting for you below.



The Fab Four’s first stop abroad? Spending Day 1 and 2 of the trip at Official Hair Tool Sponsor Dyson’s London HQ, where they got up close and personal to the latest and greatest in cutting edge tech that Dyson is revered for – as well as picking up a lesson or two from Global Styling Ambassador Larry King.

“Be hungry, be inspired and just love the industry!,” Larry advised the FAME Team, and also those looking to join in the future. “Love what it is and what it can do for you – and never be afraid to push the boundaries.”


Next cab off the rank? Heading to Electric Space for a day spent soaking up inspiration and guidance from a series of mentors led by none other than Errol Douglas and including Mark Woolly and Justine Collins.

 “Getting into the FAME Team is not easy, but then again you have a whole year to ensure that you place your creative stamp on Australia… And the world,” explains Errol. “Whilst I wanted to share with the team my career and journey, I also wanted to share ideas coming up for MANE STAGE as part of AHFA Weekend – because it is such an inspiring stage.” 

And as for his words of encouragement to the ‘23 FAME Team? “You are the legacy – when those four names are called, it means that you are representing Australian hairdressing.”

Following this day of fuelling their ambition and setting their sights on the future, the team were fortunate enough to join forces with their UK FAME Team counterparts for an evening spent bonding and sharing their FAME Team journeys to date.


Whilst not a traditionally educational or rigidly structured day on the agenda, the Culture Day proves an invaluable opportunity for the FAME Team to explore incredible London Town with Jack Morton and inspire themselves through the many cultural experiences planned throughout the day – from exhibitions through to stalking the streets for street style inspiration and allowing themselves time in London to work on their eagerly anticipated MANE STAGE looks.


 Up next on the ‘23 FAME Team’s once-in-a-lifetime UK Trip agenda? An incredible session spent with Davroe Ambassador and frequent Guido Paulo collaborator Jordan Robertson Hair who took the team through all things editorial ahead of their MANE STAGE debut, his partnership with Davroe and his own career journey that has led him to some of the world’s biggest runways.


“Just keep trying,” says Jordan of persevering and not giving up on your goals. “Reach out to your favourite artists, reach out to everyone! Reach out to stylists that you like, make up artists that you like – you’ll never look silly! 

“With social media now, you can reach out to everyone. If the read it and don’t respond to your question, unsend it and send it again the next week – and then the next month. Pester these people, because everyone came from nothing.”


A FAME Team UK Trip simply would not be complete without a visit to Salon International, which is exactly how the team spent their last two days of an unbelievable trip. THE destination for professional hairdressers to network, meet their hair heroes and experience the latest and greatest in products and tools, Salon International gave the FAME Team to experience one of the biggest and most revered trade shows that global hairdressing has to offer. 

A jam-packed two day immersion in the busy Salon International environment – including a visit to FAME Team Sponsor Davroe’s stand – served as the ultimate way in which to end the once-in-a-lifetime adventure that was the 2023 FAME Team UK Trip.
