One week until the winners of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards are announced – who will be The One? Monday 21 November 2011 PDF Print With only seven days to go until the winners are announced at HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, the anticipation and excitement is mounting across the UK. The glittering awards ceremony will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, a JW Marriott Hotel in London’s Park Lane. The British Hairdressing Awards is the ‘Oscars’ of the British hairdressing industry and sets the standard in creativity, inspiring hairdressers around the globe. In its 27th year, the event celebrates the best in British hairdressing - recognising and rewarding stylists throughout the UK with nine regional categories and six specialist categories including Newcomer of the Year, Men’s Hairdresser of the Year, Schwarzkopf Professional British Colour Technician of the Year and the much coveted British Hairdresser of the Year title. In 2011 there are eight nominees for British Hairdresser of the Year - Andrew Barton, Errol Douglas, Tim Hartley, Mark Hayes, Gary Hooker & Michael Young, Akin Konizi, Mark Leeson and the current British Hairdresser of the Year, Angelo Seminara. The nominees are all hoping to follow in the footsteps of industry icons Trevor Sorbie, Charles Worthington, Andrew Collinge, Nicky Clarke and John Frieda - previous recipients of this highly coveted award. Following a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner and chart-topping entertainment, the sixteen regional and specialist category award winners will be announced by a popular and high profile media personality. This year the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame will have a new inductee, as Sharon Peake of Ethos Hairdressing will receive a trophy for winning North Western Hairdresser of the Year three times. Last years British Hairdressing Awards is a night the current British Hairdresser of the Year, Angelo Seminara won’t forget. A delighted Angelo commented, “Winning HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year for the second time will definitely go down as one of the most special moments in my life. It is a tremendous accolade to have your work recognised by your peers. The British Hairdressing Awards are the best in the world, it’s the highest accolade you can be rewarded with – every hairdresser dreams of winning.” Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Hairdressers Journal International, Jayne Lewis-Orr adds, “Each year the standard of work gets higher and this year is no exception. We are so proud that British hairdressing has such tremendous standing and the British Hairdressing Awards prove that Britain is leading the industry on a global scale.” The 2011 British Hairdressing Awards Finalists: Regional Finalists Eastern Hairdresser of the Year Christopher Appleton, George’s Hairdressing, Leicester, Leicestershire Paul Falltrick, Paul Falltrick Hairdressing, Romford, Essex Terri Kay, Mark Leeson Hair Body & Mind, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire Nathan Jasztal, Silhouette Du Barry, Chelmsford, Essex Angelo Vallillo, Zullo and Holland, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire Kai Wan, p.kai hair, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire London Hairdresser of the Year Efi Davies, Toni & Guy, Covent Garden Ben Moth and Valerie Benavides, Brooks & Brooks Richard Mannah, Toni & Guy, Sloane Square Desmond Murray, Atherton Cox Cos Sakkas, Toni & Guy, South Kensington Jamie Stevens, Errol Douglas Salon Midlands Hairdresser of the Year Sarah Bowron and Adrian Bowron, Aesthetics, Solihull, West Midlands Anya Dellicompagni, Francesco Group, Stafford, Staffordshire Nick Malenko and Ashley Gamble, Royston Blythe, Compton, Wolverhampton Katie Mulcahy, Lisa Shepherd Salons, Birmingham Peter Prosser, Peter Prosser Hairdressing, Hereford Sean Tetlow, The Colour Room, Stockport, Cheshire North Eastern Hairdresser of the Year Lindsay Burr, The Goodys Group, North Malton, North Yorkshire Rebecca Dickenson and Adele Bourne, The Vanilla Rooms, Bawtry, Doncaster Joseph Ferraro, Halo, Harrogate, North Yorkshire Hannah Gordon, Paul Gordon, Scunthorpe, South Humberside Julian Holland, The Mark Hill Salon, Kirk Ella, East Yorkshire Marcus King, Hooker & Young, Wynyard, County Durham Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year Julie Cherry, Shane Bennett Salon, Hillsborough, Co.
