Sassoon UK Colour Director, Edward Darley was awarded the coveted accolade of ‘Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year 2016’ at the Fellowship for British Hairdressing Luncheon Awards held at the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London on Monday 5th December 2016.
Edward says, “I was stunned to hear my name called out - ‘Fellowship Hairdresser of the Year’ - it has left me utterly speechless. To receive such an accolade, particularly as this award is nominated and judged by the most illustrious names in the industry, is truly a very special honour”.
Working with the Fellowship is always tremendously exciting. Their motto ‘strength through quality’ permeates everything that they undertake and has distinct parallels with the philosophy of the Sassoon organisation. As UK Colour Director, Edward is responsible for educating and developing the next generation of Sassoon colourists, dividing his time between the salons and academies coaching the teams in their work. He has developed an international reputation for being the consummate professional on the many shows and seminars he undertakes globally. Edward also works very closely alongside Mark Hayes, International Creative Director developing the key trends for the Sassoon seasonal salon and academy collections.
“To win such a prestigious award is quite simply an amazing experience, and one that I will never forget.”
