Today, when we reveal who is in this echelon of top hairdressers in the UK, it’s always a day to celebrate the best of British hairdressing. As an industry we have been hugely hit by Covid-19, but the resilience and the spirit of British hairdressing is seen as we pull together and recognise that we are united as an industry, it is a great reminder that we have so much amazing talent within our midst.”
