British Hairdressing Awards 2012

The benefit of being a judge in the biggest hairdressing event of the year, is that I got to go along to the glittering ceremony of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2012. Held in the decadant surroundings of Grosvenor House in London’s Mayfair, the ceremony was definitely the highlight of my year so far. Surrounded by the industry’s best talent, as well as half the country’s supply of sequins and hairspray, I was witness to futures being made and careers reaching their peak. Hosted by the fabulous David Walliams, the ceremony included a performance by Labryrinth and a special appearance by Gok Wan, as well as regional and specialist categories up for grabs. All the winners are below, but the man who scooped the most coveted prize of British Hairdresser of the Year was Angelo Seminara. You can read the interview he gave me before the announcement here, but in the meantime enjoy looking at some of my snaps from the night (including a little show from all the finalists) and the full list of winners.
