As UK Ambassador for Schwarzkopf Professional’s Shaping Futures initiative, Janet has worked tirelessly to share her hairdressing knowledge with underprivileged children and to encourage other hairdressers to join her.
It is a challenging, but rewarding role, so Janet was flattered to have her hard work recognised by Schwarzkopf Professional at their Elite Gala Weekend, held at the Belfry.
The event, a celebration of hairdressing, brought together more than 300 of Schwarzkopf Professional’s leading hair stylists and salons for a weekend of inspiration, including a live competition, which Janet was invited to judge.
The Gala Dinner included a moment to celebrate and congratulate the exceptional hard work and dedication of all the volunteers who have travelled to orphanages in India and Jordan as part of Shaping Futures since 2010, but there was a really touching tribute to Janet, which resulted in a standing ovation.
Janet says: “It is an absolute privilege to have worked with so many amazing hairdressers and to have been able to help Shaping Futures to be the success it has been. I was so humbled to have such a phenomenal reaction from my peers.
“I look forward to helping more young people to learn new skills and hopefully gain employment, hope and a future in the years to come.”
