Yay for a slew of Brit hairdressers who are on the just-released list of finalists for the AIPP Trophy 2019 – especially Hairclublive members Sylvestre Finold and Steven Smart! Oh yes, and tons of our honorary members and friends including Desmond Murray, Angelo Seminara and D&J Ambrose.
AIPP Trophy Finalists
One of the biggest international trophy competitions is the AIPP annual event – inviting entrants from all over the world to be judged by the trade press. This really is quite a rigorous contest and to get onto the finalist list is really something. There are several categories including one for video – which is so worth following, with winners in each being announced on stage at the Alternative Hair Show in London next week (October 6th), and an overall winner chosen in Spring 2020 and announced at Cosmoprof, we believe.
We’re super-happy to see Steven Smart and Sylvester Finold make it onto the global awards scene… way to go guys!
It takes a lot of work and finesse, guts and talent to get noticed. We’ll be watching during Salon International weekend for news and keeping it all crossed for you.
So for the rest, who’s in it? Check out this list below… with particular attention to the UK obvs (you’ll see why we’re so happy for our guys when you notice the company they’re keeping)….
