This event has been raising the profile of the industry for more than three decades, and the eight nominees have been selected by a panel of industry experts who have recognised these eight as the best ambassadors for their craft, representing the industry on a global scale as they travel the world educating and inspiring.

Each nominee will now be invited to submit a collection of eight exclusive images, showcasing their creative and technical ability, which will be judged independently, and anonymously by a panel of credible experts, with the results collated by a team of independent auditors.

The nominees and finalists from 16 categories – including nine regional and six specialist disciplines – will have to wait until Monday, 23rd November to see if they will be recognised as the very best in the industry. The stage for the biggest hairdressing awards event, which has named Charles Worthington MBE, Trevor Sorbie MBE, John Frieda, Andrew Collinge and Anthony Mascolo amongst its winners in previous years is the Grosvenor House, a J W Marriott Hotel.

Jayne Lewis-Orr, Executive Director of Hairdressers Journal International commented, “These Awards are the most revered and exciting in the hairdressing calendar, offering a source of international inspiration and ensuring the UK retains its dominant position in the global hairdressing industry. I would like to wish all the nominees and finalists the very best of luck and congratulate them on their achievements to date.”
