And the winner is….

 

Months of testing, evaluating and analysing came to a sparkling finale on Monday with the HAIR Magazine HAIR Awards 2019 Winners’ Celebration at The Globe London.This intimate event was attended by 120 people, all winners in their own right, either of the Super 60, those hard working products that have been rigorously tested and found to be best in their class or The Cut, the top stylists and salons in the business.

During the champagne reception, winners of the Super 60 collected their certificates and circulated pictures on social media announcing their success. Ashleigh Hodges of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing congratulated everyone who had won and commented on how heartening it was to see so much hairdressing talent being recognised by the Awards.

Then the moment that everyone had been waiting for, the winners of The Cut were announced and were presented with their HAIR Awards trophies by Penelope Cheshire, Managing Director of Beauty Works.

Several high profile personalities from the hair world were to be seen at the sparkling celebration including celebrity hairdressers Errol Douglas MBE and Jamie Stevens.
