Congratulations to our very own Ben Cope for being accepted on to this year’s Fellowship for British Hairdressing Project X! Over the next 12 months Ben will be sharing his experiences on the course!
What is Project X?
Project x is a course run by the fellowship for British hairdressing. This course will be run for the year of 2015 and will enable Ben to work with some of the best hairdressers in the industry broadening his knowledge and experience.
Project X Day 1 – 18/01/15
“My first day at project x was meeting our mentor Ashleigh, and to learn about presentation skills with Edward Hemmings.”
Ben was truly taken out of his comfort zone in Day 1. He was asked to bring a mood board that showed things which inspire him and a memorable item to the session. Edward then took the group through the basics of presenting and gave each member some tips on how they might improve. As the year goes on, Ben will be given opportunities to present ideas to the team back at the salon and with his peers at Project X which I’m sure he’ll be able to implement Edwards ideas in.
“I’ve got a full year ahead of me with lots of things to look forward to such as working with top hairdressers like Jamie Stevens and Zoe Irwin. I am mostly looking forward to our session with Jamie Stevens where we will be learning about making wigs.”
