Nominated by top-tier hairdressers, influencers and UK and international press for their professional reputation, creative vision and their ability to act as an ambassador for British hairdressing, executive director of Hairdressers Journal International, Jayne Lewis Orr, said, ‘British hairdressing has certainly faced its greatest ever challenge this year. It has been a testing time for us all and I have been so impressed with, but not surprised by, the industry’s continued professionalism, resilience and creativity.’

Julian Crane, general manager of Henkel Beauty Care UK and Ireland comments, ‘As an industry we have been hugely hit by Covid-19, but the resilience and the spirit of British hairdressing is seen as we pull together and recognise that we are united as an industry, it is a great reminder that we have so much amazing talent within our midst.’


The winner will be announced on Monday 30th November 2020 at JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, alongside the winners in six specialist categories and nine regional categories, on the biggest night in the hairdressing calendar.
