FAME Team Learn the Ropes of Session Styling with Syd Hayes
Over the years Syd Hayes has built his name in the world of session styling. He is signed to Art + Commerce a top talent agency and works with clients including Gucci, Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs to name a few.
While juggling his session styling, Syd also works as a director at his family salon, Q Cut, in London, and is UK ambassador for BaByliss Pro. It’s his 360 degree involvement in the industry that led Syd to spend the day with the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s F.A.M.E. Team, during an inspirational day of mentoring and education.
The team met Syd at the Kent Brushes factory in Hertfordshire, where they were taken on a private tour of the factory – which has been erect for more than 240 years and which remains a family business to this day.
Following their morning with Kent, Syd and the F.A.M.E. Team made their way back into London to spend the afternoon at the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill. In the private screening room each team member got a one-on-one with Syd taking the opportunity to ask him anything about making it in the industry.
“Throughout the day, Syd shared so much information about his career to date, and how we could make the most our experiences too. We all really enjoyed the day and received some priceless information. It was an experience that I don’t think any of us will ever forget,” said Peter Mellon from Medusa Hairdressing in Edinburgh.
