Revlon Professional has announced the launch of its mentoring programme, Revlon Visionaries 2024. This life-changing opportunity will see four creative stylists enjoy a year-long mentorship programme, directed by Revlon Professional Global Ambassador, multi-award-winning Mark Leeson.
Mark comments: "Revlon Visionaries is one of the most powerful programmes for anyone looking to elevate their skill set, whether it is salon, session or editorial techniques. Alongside creative skills, our previous candidates have benefited from a real boost in confidence.”
The Revlon Visionaries 2024 programme includes presentation skills, photographic shoots, plus PR and social networking sessions, which will help elevate each person beyond recognition.
“Anyone lucky enough to make it through as part of the Revlon Visionaries 2024 Team will see their careers catapulted to the next level,” Mark adds. The scheme is open to all Revlon Professional salons. There is no upper limit on age, but to be considered, applicants must be a hairdresser and a colourist with a minimum of four years' hairdressing experience, to include an NVQ 2 qualification plus two years’ salon experience.
Applicants will be asked to provide a before/after of a fashion forward image showcasing an ‘on-trend’ haircut enhanced by beautiful colour via a digital entry form. Applications close on Friday 26 January 2024, and then 12 finalists will be chosen by a team of judges.
The final will take place at the Revlon Professional Academy in Leeds on Monday 12 February 2024, where shortlisted candidates will be asked to recreate their model (colour and hairstyle) in front of a panel of industry judges. The four successful finalists will be announced the following day as the Revlon Visionaries 2024.
The Visionaries line-up 2023 included:
- Danny Malone at Macc Hair
- Ashley Long at Directors
- Dodge Mackay at Andrew Jose
- Jessie Roux at Pink Soda Hair
- Emy Roccabella at Danilo Hair Boutique
The Revlon Visionaries Team 2023 enjoyed an incredible year of opportunities, which included editorial
photoshoots, international stage shows and their very own showcase at Salon International.
Some of the team commented...
Danny Malone: “It’s a ‘money can’t buy’ experience. You’re going to get to shoot with amazing photographers, meet new friends and get to do things you’d never imagined.”
Ashley Long: “My confidence has grown massively just from being involved and being around such creative people. I’ve learnt so much – even from the other team members.”
Jessie Roux: “This experience has taken my skills and confidence to a whole new level. I’ve met a lot of talented people and I am beyond grateful. I’ve stepped out from my little pond and I’m now swimming with the big fish.”
As if anyone needed any more encouragement to apply for the The Revlon Visionaries Team 2024, Mark Leeson adds: “This opportunity to network, meet people, gain knowledge and put yourself forward will get you noticed and let people know who you are and what you’re about. One day you’ll be inspiring the next generation of hopefuls yourself.”
