British Hairdressing Business Awards
British Hairdressing Business Awards 2018 Winners are Revealed
The British Hairdressing Business Awards winners 2018 were announced on 17 September at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, by host presenter Vernon Kay.
It was an awe-inspiring night, hosted by TV presenter Vernon Kay and Hairdressers Journal International’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr.
The awards showcased the vast amount of business innovation within hairdressing and why the UK hairdressing sector is one to watch worldwide. HJ’s editor, Laura Husband said: “This year’s British Hairdressing Business Awards highlighted the strategic thinking and outstanding customer care that exists within our industry. Brexit is fast approaching so we can all learn from how this year’s winners have thought outside of the box to boost profits and secure new business.”
The evening kicked off with a special mention to Steve Rowbottom and Marc Westerman for entering the British Hairdressing Business Awards Hall of Fame for Business Directors of the Year (2004, 2012, 2017).
