Shortcuts client and talented hairdresser Joseph Ferraro has received the ultimate accolade from his peers after being presented with a top industry award.
The award-winning stylist, owner of North Yorkshire’s Halo Hair and Beauty has been made a Fellow with Honours by the Fellowship for British Hairdressing.
At a glittering luncheon at London’s Dorchester Hotel Joseph was presented with the award by another Shortcuts client; Fellowship President Errol Douglas MBE.
Nominated by his hairdressing peers for services to the hairdressing industry, Australian-born Joseph, who has had his own salon in Harrogate for the past seven years, is overjoyed with the honour.
“The Fellowship for British Hairdressing Awards are unique in that the winners are nominated and chosen by fellow hairdressers,” said Joseph, two-time North Eastern Hairdresser of the Year finalist and former member of the Fellowship’s F.A.M.E Team (Fellowship Academy for Merit and Excellence)
“It is very special for me to know that my peers in the industry acknowledge the hard work and commitment that I put into my profession,” said Joseph, a regular at London Fashion Week and Salon Stylist 2013 finalist.
“It is vitally important to give back to an industry that has given me so much, and to help inspire and educate young stylists of the future,” he added.
A Fellow with Honours, awarded by the Fellowship, recognises a hairdresser who has made an ‘outstanding contribution’ to hairdressing.
As well as working in his Harrogate salon, Joseph runs training and education seminars and workshops for the Fellowship across the UK, and promotes the group’s ClubStar team for young hairdressers aged between 16 and 25 years. He is also an educator for Sebastian.
