Students, apprentices and assistants enjoyed the chance to work backstage at London Collections: Men thanks to MyHairdressers.com (MHD) and Fudge.
Four future stars were picked to assist on the shows after having submitted pictures of their work to the Fudge Lookbook, with shots then judged by creative director John Vial.
Reece Bullman of Strangeways in Essex, Rachel McVeigh of The Coach House in Wolverhampton, Harry Andreou of Blo Bar in Ramsey and student Jorden Bowen from Coleg Morgannwg Nantgarw in Wales were announced as the winners, getting the opportunity to work both backstage at the shows and in the Fudge Fix pop-up salon.
Reflecting on his experience, Reece said: “Winning this prize and getting the opportunity to be part of such an amazing event is something I’ve always wanted to do. Working in the Fudge Fix salon alongside such talented hairdressers, and actually being able to show my skills as well as learn from John Vial was brilliant.”
