The Fellowship for British Hairdressing has announced Tanahya Nash from Tony Wood Hairdressing in Southsea as the winner of the 2018 Sassoon scholarship.

Every year the Sassoon Academy provides a scholarship to one lucky member of the Fellowship, the winner of which will enjoy four-week courses, as well as a toolkit from Denman ensuring they’re fully equipped to grow their budding careers.
The shortlist of ten applicants were interviewed by a glittering panel of industry experts including, Megan Danskine from the Professional Hairdresser magazine, Charlotte Grant-West from the Hairdressers Journal, Martyn Wady from Denman and Edward Darley of Sassoon.
Ultimately, Tanahya was crowned the victor after fending off tough competition, hours of interviews and nerve wracking deliberation from the esteemed judges.
Tanahya said: “I’m planning to learn and develop as much as possible, so I can become a secure and steady stylist.
“I also want to make sure I pass on my education to upcoming apprentices, so I can pay the knowledge back.
“In five years I would like to be educating more myself, so this is the perfect start!”
Fellowship educator, Michelle Griffin, said: “Tanahya had an amazing bubbly personality, is passionate and self-motivated and we all agreed she would embrace the Sassoon education and use it as a platform for her career.”
