British Hairdressing Awards Celebrate Creative Talent
HJ’s 2016 British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, saw the stars of our industry out in force, celebrating the creative talent that has made Britain the envy of the hairdressing world.
HJ’s executive director, Jayne Lewis-Orr, welcomed guests to the Grosvenor House hotel, Park Lane, telling all the finalists that they should be immensely proud of their achievements. ”This is a culmination of hard work and dedication,” she said. “This industry continues to grow, develop and innovate. The British Hairdressing Awards celebrates the creativity that the rest of the world aspires to.”
Celebrity host David Walliams brought his unique brand of humour to the event, while X Factor 2015 winner Louisa Johnson provided the musical interlude.
Angelo Seminara took home the most prestigious award of the night, British Hairdresser of the Year – marking his fourth victory, rivalling Akin Konizi and his former mentor, Trevor Sorbie.
The night also saw winners announced in a host of regional and specialist categories.
Congratulations to all our winners!
