While accepting his award Andrew stated, “It is a wonderful surprise to receive this. I started working with the Fellowship 40 years ago when my father was President of the organisation. Hairdressing is about getting together and sharing ideas through creativity; working together for the greater benefit of our industry; this is what makes British hairdressing the best in the world. My father has been a member of the Fellowship for 64 years and I’m proud that he is here today to see me receive this award.“
