THIS JUST IN. Great Britain’s top hairdressers and talent were celebrated at the annual 2018 British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional and hosted by Hairdressers Journal International—and we’re sharing the winning collections! From regional entries to specialist collections, hairdressers were recognized in 16 different categories including the prestigious British Hairdresser of the Year.

 

British-favorite TV personality Rylan Clark-Neal hosted the evening at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, where guests were welcomed and danced along with musical entertainment from noughties rock band Scouting For Girls. For the second year, Schwarzkopf Professional inspired the audience by showcasing their Young Artistic Team collection, art directed by session stylist Tyler Johnston (@tylerjohnstonhair)

 

Finalists are judged twice by a panel consisting of hairdressing legends, leading national beauty press and past winners of the awards who have since joined the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame, an accolade presented to those who win the same category on more than three occasions.
