way to celebrate our 75th anniversary than to launch the new role of
ambassador with two of the most respected international icons in the
hairdressing industry. While
this the role has begun in the hairdressing sector, we will also be inviting
key industry figures from the barbering and beauty sectors to accept our
invitation to become honorary ambassadors in the future years that follow. We

We're big supporters of the organisation and truly believe their work within the industry is pushing businesses to the next level and providing stylists with a huge range of opportunities and business advice.
