The team at KH Hair in Arnold is celebrating after stylist, Amelia Krasinski, was awarded a place on The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s ‘Project Colour’ mentoring programme.

The prestigious year-long course is the Fellowship’s dedicated colour programme, providing team members the chance to learn and grow through education and opportunities with the industry’s leading colour stars. 19-year-old Amelia impressed the judges with her entry and examples of her recent work enough to be chosen as one of only twelve team members from across the UK.

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing is renowned for its creative progression, networking environment and the educational opportunities provided to members and industry peers alike. The Project Colour programme provides access to some of the finest colourists in the hair industry, who will share their unique colour application techniques, creativity, art direction and vision – focusing on the artistry of pure hair colour. Throughout 2024, the action-packed course will include uniquely tailored educational days and incorporate a photoshoot where Amelia will be able to use her newly acquired skills, coupled with her passion for colour.

Amelia, who completed her hairdressing apprenticeship in 2022, has been going from strength to strength since reaching the finals of the Wella Professionals TrendVision Awards UK & Ireland 2023. She says she is over the moon to be picked for Project Colour. “I’m so excited be a part of the team and for the whole experience that will come along with it,” she says. “I can’t wait to be inspired by some of the best colourists in the industry and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. I am very much looking forward to the year ahead and to working alongside an amazing team which will enable me to really grow as a stylist.”

Amelia and her fellow team members will be led by Russell Eaton’s Daniel Couch – one of the most respected colourists in the UK today, with the Northwestern British Hairdressing Award and a TrendVision Award under his belt. Passionate about all things colour, when not in the salon transforming clients, he is educating others on how to perfect their colour technique. He is a renowned educator for Wella and teaches its Master Colour programme modules.

KH Hair’s managing director, Darren Messias says the whole company is very proud of Amelia’s achievement. “We are absolutely delighted for Amelia in securing a place on the Project Colour team.” He says. “She is such a talented and creative hairdresser and has always shown a real passion for colour, so the knowledge and experience she will gain by being part of the 2024 team will be invaluable.”
