2019 Step Up & SHINE Winner's Journey 

Amanda Linehan from Hot Trends in Gillingham, Kent has been awarded the Step Up & SHINE Scholarship for 2019! Follow her bespoke education programme as part of winning the prestigious industry competition here.

May 2019

Amanda was awarded with the scholarship at the Fellowship's President's Network. 

"Winning Step Up & SHINE is a dream come true! It took a lot for me to enter the competition because I have been lacking confidence for some time now, even though I have been a stylist for the past 16 years. But entering is the best decision I’ve ever made! The scholarship is going to give me the boost I need to learn the new skills that I have been craving. I can’t wait to get started and take my knowledge back to the salon with me.”
