One of the biggest events of the hairdressing calendar took place on Monday evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel, a J W Marriott Hotel, on London’s Park Lane … the British Hairdressing Awards!
The star-studded ceremony was hosted by Cat Deeley, alongside HJ’s executive director, Jayne Lewis-Orr. More than 1,500 of the top hairdressing talent from across the country attended the awards, which is a celebration of the most creative and technically-gifted hairstylists in Britain.
There are 16 categories in total; nine regional and six specialist awards and, the ultimate accolade, British Hairdresser of the Year. The Artistic Team of the Year award celebrates the strength and beauty that comes from a united, collaborative team with a shared vision and diverse skills.
Each entrant must submit a series of images demonstrating not only their technical dexterity, but their creative vision and comprehension of current trends. Looks must be wearable and beautiful, as well as pushing the boundaries and limitations of hairdressing to showcase the pinnacle of a hairstylist’s creativity. Finalists are then judged, twice, by a panel consisting of hairdressing legends, leading national beauty press and past winners of the awards who have since joined the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame; an accolade presented to those who win the same category on more than three occasions.
A huge congratulations to all the winners, an outstanding achievement and over all a fantastic event!
