Nicola Hamm winner of Step Up & Shine

Nicola Hamm at Ruffians Barbers

#Spotted… Shout-out to HairClubLive supporter Nicola Hamm! She’s only gone and won the Step Up & Shine 2018 competition (run in partnership by the NHF and the Fellowship for British Hairdressing). Her prize is  a year-long  training programme to develop and grow her skill set.. How exciting!
Nicola is from Escape Hair Lounge in Southsea, Portsmouth but will be travelling around during her year. She’s kicked it all off with an inspirational day hosted by her Step Up & Shine mentor, another friend of HCL’s, Debbie G. During the session Nicola expressed an interest in growing her barbering knowledge, so for the second session, Step Up & Shine asked Joshua Stokes (pictured) at Ruffians barbershop in Marylebone, London to come on board and help Nicola brush up on her skin-fade skills. Nicola says: “I’ve only had basic barber training in the past so being able to learn new ways to cut hair at a Ruffians barbershop was great. I gained so many new skills during my day with Joshua and I feel so motivated to put everything I learned into practice. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring!”
We’ll be keeping up with Ms Hamm via Instagram and Twitter and hoping to post more of her stories here. Join in with a follow her on social media media, Instagram @nicolakristel_hair
