We hope the year is getting off to a great start for you all, we’re certainly very excited for the projects ahead of us.
This month we want to celebrate some hairdressing stars!
HJi British Hairdressing Business Awards 2018
A massive star-studded event in London revealed the winners of the HJi British Hairdressing Business Awards 2018. More than 800 hairdressers attended the Park Plaza hotel in London to celebrate with a host of hairdressing VIPs and celebrities.
The sparkling evening was hosted by TV presenter Vernon Kay and Hairdressers Journal International’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr.
We’re celebrating the winner of ‘Junior of the Year’, sponsored by Salon Services. This category was open to all junior or assistant hairdressers in the UK. The nominees had to be in training for a maximum of three years to be classed as a junior. Hairdressing training is an intense few years and we want to praise those that put their all into it and strive to be the best.
Darcey Clarke, 18, from Ashley Gamble was crowned the winner, impressing the judges with her commitment to training, her career aspirations and her passion for hairdressing.
Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of the British Hairdressing Business Awards said; “Huge congratulations to Darcey on being named Junior of the Year. She is a fantastic ambassador for the industry with skills and vision that make her the perfect winner. Through these awards, we champion and celebrate the very best within British hairdressing – everyone from the Front of House Team to the Business Director. Hairdressing is often undervalued as a career choice despite the opportunities it affords people including worldwide travel as a session stylist, flexible working as well as a creative and business outlet for driven individuals. “There are over 40,000 hairdressing, barbering and beauty businesses in the UK, with the number growing daily. The industry employs nearly 300,000** individuals with over half being self-employed and it is a hugely innovative industry and one we are all incredibly proud to work within.”
