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.


Since its inception in 1985, the title of HJ British Hairdresser of the Year has gone to such names as Trevor Sorbie, John Frieda, Umberto Giannini, Nicky Clarke, Charles Worthington, Antoinette Beenders and Beverley C to name a few. 


General Manager of Henkel Beauty Care UK and Ireland Julian Crane comments, “Being the sole sponsor of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards for the past 36 years, is a huge honor for Schwarzkopf Professional. Today, when we reveal who is in this echelon of top hairdressers in the UK, it’s always a day to celebrate the best of British hairdressing.”
