Hurrah!!! Our very own #bossman Darren Fowler won the Creative HEAD Most Wanted Male Grooming Specialist 2019 at an incredible event at the Printworks in London on Monday night!
Darren saw off four other competitors in this hotly contested category – it was extremely difficult to make it to the final, let alone win it!
“I am humbled and honoured to have won this award, it’s really is amazing. There were so many strong male groomers in this category so just to be alongside them was brilliant, but to win – it’s another thing altogether! These awards are highly regarded in the industry – I love male grooming, it’s a real passion of mine, so to be recognised for the work I have done is incredible. And to celebrate with some of the team alongside me was the best.”
To win Darren had to submit a portfolio showcasing his work in male grooming including a selection of images of his work and two case studies – one was on his work with men for London Fashion Week, and the other showcased ‘The Men’s Project’, an initiative Darren setup and rolled out in India. The Project teaches hairdressers how to build a strong male business within their salon in a country that has a strong focus on barbers. His portfolio was then judged by leading names in the British hairdressing, fashion and creative industries to reach the Grand Final which was no mean feat!
“I’ve always believed that fowler35 should be as much about the guys as it is about the girls. We’ve built a strong ethos around male grooming, and our team’s super experienced in looking after our male community. We are always upskilling and regularly train with barbers so we can ensure that we know the latest techniques and merge that into our traditional men’s hairdressing skills.”
