The British Hairdressing Awards (BHA) 2020 were broadcasted virtually on Facebook Live on Monday, November 30.
The annual photo-based competition and awards ceremony, hosted by Hairdressers Journal and sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, celebrate and showcase the best of hairdressing talent across the United Kingdom, including England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
With their first-ever virtual event, BHA wanted to honour the finalists and winners and reach an even wider audience. Finalists were given access to their own virtual rooms to celebrate with their family, friends and colleagues.
The most prestigious and highly anticipated award of the night, British Hairdresser of the Year 2020, was awarded to Sally Brooks of Brooks & Brooks Hair in London, England for her collection “2020 WTF.”
Among the esteemed winners was multi-Contessa winner and 2021 Canadian Hairstylist of the Year, Silas Tsang of Blushes in Ottawa who took home the prize for International Collection of the Year.
“A huge congratulations to Silas. This win is a phenomenal achievement and career highlight, particularly after the difficulties faced by the industry this year,” says Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards. “Silas’ hair work demonstrated unrivalled vision, skill and creativity, gaining him recognition as one of the best in the business.”
Congratulations to all the BHA 2020 winners!
