The Rush Oscars: Inspiration, Empowerment, Motivation

The RUSH Team has celebrated yet another outstanding year which has included new salon openings, a new academy and the RUSH Art Team entering hairdressing's ‘Hall of Fame’, after winning Artistic Team of the Year, three times.

The atmosphere was electric as RUSH CEO and Co-founder, Stell Andrew, gave a passionate and motivational welcoming speech that truly inspired the 1000 plus attendees - the RUSH Oscars once again provided the perfect way to get 2018 off to a flying start. Hosted by International Creative Director, Andy Heasman and International Colour Director, Chris Williams, Andy went on to share RUSH’s plans for educating and developing the brand and stated how proud the RUSH family is of the entire team. He then welcomed CEO and Co-Founder of RUSH, Andy Phouli to the stage. Giving an impassioned speech, Andy highlighted the many successes of 2017, including the launch of the new RUSH Academy and award wins and nominations at the British Hairdressing Awards. To get the party started, RUSH client and X Factor’s Kevin Davy-White took to the stage to perform The Beatles classic ‘Come Together’ highlighting  the close knit bond of the RUSH family.

Each year, RUSH raise valuable funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital  (GOSH) with their RUSH Live Show. This year was no exception and to add to the total raised at RUSH Live, additional funds were raised at Andy Phouli’s birthday party, where guests were asked to donate to GOSH instead of bringing a birthday gift which added an additional £10,000 to the total. RUSH’s Tina Farey and Paola Pinto took to the stage to speak about how much the company’s long-standing relationship and commitment with GOSH means and presented GOSH with a cheque for £14,245.83 which took the total raised over eight years to £135,000.
