For so many of us, winning at the British Hairdressing Awards (BHAs) is a super-high point in the career. Well done, bravo, congratulations to our people and to everyone in fact.
We loved the show by Lesley Jennison at Schwarzkopf Professional – showcasing superb colour and trends – with cut and style by Tyler Johnston. And the brilliant Rylan ‘off the telly’ who was our favourite host ever… oh we laughed!
And obvs, we want to say big congrats to Robert Eaton for scooping the top gong – British Hairdresser of the Year 2019.
What are the BHAs?
Entrants to the prestigious awards must submit a series of images demonstrating not only their technical hairdressing dexterity, but their creative vision and comprehension of current trends too. Looks must be wearable and beautiful, as well as pushing the boundaries and limitations of hairdressing to showcase the pinnacle of a hairstylist’s creativity. Finalists were then judged, twice, by a panel consisting of hairdressing legends, leading national beauty press and members of the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame; an accolade presented to those who win the same category on more than three occasions.
A win at the awards doesn’t just provide industry recognition. A British Hairdressing Award marks the winner out as one of the most talented hair professionals in the country and, as the world continues to look to the UK for hairdressing inspiration, trend forecasting and techniques, walking away with a trophy at the awards can lead to global recognition.
