Local Hairdressers A Cut Above

Hairdressers Journal International hosted its British Hairdressing Awards last night, with 1,700 of the country’s finest hairstylists gathering at London’s glamorous Grosvenor House, a J W Marriott Hotel, for the industry event of the year.

Now in their fourth decade, the awards, which are sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, celebrate the very best in British hairdressing talent – an industry which contributes £7bn to the national economy and one which employs more than 300,000 people. With nine regional and six specialist categories - as well as the ultimate award, British Hairdresser of the Year - the awards have launched the careers of a host of household names; from John Frieda, Nicky Clarke and Charles Worthington to Anthony Mascolo, Lisa Shepherd and Beverley C, as well as TV favourites Jamie Stevens and Andrew Barton.

This year’s ceremony was hosted by David Walliams, alongside Hairdressers Journal International’s executive director, Jayne Lewis-Orr.

Amongst the trophies handed out by the duo on the night was Men’s Hairdresser of the Year, which was scooped by Terri Kay and Andrea Giles of Mark Leeson: Hair, Body & Mind in Mansfield. The salon also took home Eastern Hairdresser of the Year trophy which was awarded Joseph I’Anson and Lisa Graham.

Speaking on the night, Terri and Andrea said: “Oh wow! Who gets an award for playing with beautiful men's hair all day? We had an amazing time doing the shoot, allowing us to collaborate and merge our ideas and creativity together to create an award-winning collection. It’s been an amazing opportunity; the whole team at Mark Leeson is amazing.”

Men’s hair is a booming business, making a win in this category a smart business success as well as a creative one. The hairdressing industry has seen a 44 per cent increase in male clients through their doors over the last twelve months, with the average gent spending over £700 a year on services. There’s never been a better time to be a men’s hairdresser – which makes this win all the more exciting.
