Jack’s the lad!

Young Nottingham hair stylist chosen for top UK creative team

A young hair stylist from Nottingham is celebrating after earning a place on one of the industry’s most coveted creative teams.

Twenty year old Jack Anthony, who works at KH Hair in Castle Gate, was chosen from hundreds of hopefuls across the UK to become one of only eight members of the Fellowship of British Hairdressing’s Clubstar Art Team, following a live audition at the Wella World Studios in London.

The ClubStar Art Team takes the very best emerging talent in the Fellowship, aged under 25, and provides an exciting opportunity for those chosen to take part in Fellowship stage presentations and attend incredible monthly mentoring days in London.

Jack, who recently moved to Nottingham from Yorkshire, says he is so happy to have made it on to the Team.  “I love hairdressing. It’s pretty much all I’ve ever wanted to do and I enjoyed every minute of my audition.” he said. “I was nervous and excited but it seems my hard work really paid off.  I’m now looking forward to an incredible year of opportunity and learning and would like to thank my fantastic work family at KH Hair for giving me this chance to improve my skills and for supporting me all the way.”

For his audition, Jack was required to produce a live model and mood board representing his artistic direction. This was followed by a three minute presentation to a panel of expert industry judges.

Darren Messias and Tim Fee, joint managing directors of the KH Hair Group, also expressed their delight at the news: ” We are so pleased for Jack as he has shown such passion, commitment and ambition since joining KH Hair. He thoroughly deserves his place on the ClubStar Team and we know he is going to enjoy every minute of his time with them.”
