Congratulations the winners of Hairdressing Journal’s 30th British Hairdressing Awards (sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional), which was held on Nov 24 at the glamorous Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The big winner of the evening was Mark Lesson, who took home the coveted British Hairdresser of the Year. This was his fourth nomination for the award.
Here’s what he had to say about his collection: “Spotlight pushes creative boundaries and enforces my passion to always fuse incredible colour with every cut. Intricacy, great use of light and shade and perfect colour placement give the ultimate deliverance of a spectacular kaleidoscope in this couture collaboration.”
Hairdressers Jamie Stevens, Philip Bell, Bruno Marc Giamettei and Cos Sakkas were also inducted in to the Hall of Fame at the gala event, which was attended by more than 1,700 hairdressers.
