Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Project Men had the amazing opportunity to visit the HQ of Captain Fawcett and spend the day with the team.
Captain Fawcett is one of the Project’s Brand Partners, with a heritage that harks back to 1905. Richie Finney, Captain Fawcett’s founder started the day, with an introduction about the brand. The team then had a tour of the Emporium to see all the barbering memorabilia on display. Then the team were taken through the various ranges of Captain Fawcett’s products, with by a demonstration from in internationally renowned barber Sid Sottung. The team were talked through the latest cutting techniques and product know-how to take back to their own businesses. Matakki Scissors, who are also a Brand Partner alongside Wahl and Barber Connect, was also present throughout the day.
Matakki Scissors Director, Emma Curd said: “I absolutely loved the day with the team at Captain Fawcett. I think this was one of my favourite Project Men days so far. The museum was so fascinating.”
Project Men member Alex Burt added: “Such impeccable hospitality and a fascinating tour of the headquarters. I was totally blown away by it all and can’t wait to try out the products.”
