For Jordanna Cobella, becoming a member of  The Fellowship For British Hairdressing F.A.M.E  Team 2017 is her biggest achievement to date. Being part of this team of four, each member is representing young British hairdressing talent globally and who are all recognised for having hairdressing and presentation skills, original talent, team focus, charisma and sheer “star quality”.

In today’s episode, Jordanna walks us through what is required to become a successful candidate when applying and auditioning for the F.A.M.E Team, along with what it means to be in it and all the opportunities it brings. She will also share with me the moment she threw herself headfirst into a hairdressing career and the Cobella business after graduating from University with a Law degree.

Jordanna has always been surrounded by hairdressing success from a very young age with her award winning parents Anestis Cobella and Beverly C MBE. Her story is not this, but proof of how she worked tirelessly day and night training creatively, whilst also grasping the business side of the industry that is now paying dividends, with Jordanna now well on her way to becoming one of hairdressings millennial starlets.

Today’s Guest

Fellowship for British Hairdressing F.A.M.E Team 2017 member, Jordanna has been surrounded by hairdressing success from a very young age being nurtured by her award-winning parents. Always fascinated with hair, she decided to take a turn in her career path, after graduating from University with a Law degree, by throwing herself head first into the Cobella business.

Being captivated by the history of her fathers’ first worldwide selling book – Cobella Hair Avant Garde, she developed a love and passion for session work. Jordanna took this passion and entered competitions and became a L’Oreal Regional Colour Trophy Finalist in 2015 as well as leading the art team at London Fashion week 2015.

Jordanna has been asked to showcase her work at The Fellowship, Pro Hair Live and Hair Club Live and continues to build on the success of her parents in the hairdressing field.
