It’s that time of year when things start to get really busy around the SalonNV offices! It seems like only yesterday we were handing out the 2017 SHABAs but this year’s competition is already well underway with the voting officially open.

SHABA is always the best night of the year so we wish everyone entering all the very best in their search to get to the final. Each year the awards night gets bigger and better so we cannot wait to show you what’s in store for everyone this time.

To give you some inspiration we have interviews with a couple of last year’s winners, Jackie Den Heijer of Avalon Hair and Beauty and makeup artist Georgina Kane. Both have seen their careers skyrocket since winning the award last year – that could be you!

As always, our columnists have outdone themselves this issue. Jason Collier, Victoria Beckham’s stylist, offers his expert advice on this year’s hottest trend – changing from darks locks to blonde, perfect for the summer months. Meanwhile, FAME Team’s Peter Mellon has had an incredibly busy couple of months, not only undertaking more amazing tasks for the Fellowship stars but also opening up a new salon.

Speaking of the Fellowship, they are once more leading the way when it comes to events and education across the UK. I had the pleasure of attending the Hair & Vision event in Glasgow in April and was blown away by the talent on show. Long may it continue!
