HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2014: The Winners

 By on November 25, 2014 in British Hairdressing Awards

HJ's British Hairdressing Awards 2014 The Winners - Mark Leeson
Thirty years ago, one hundred hairdressers attended the very first British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional. This week saw more than 1,700 hairdressers come together at the glamorous Grosvenor House hotel to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the hairdressing Oscars, and to celebrate the winners in the nine regional and six specialist categories, as well as the ultimate award, HJ’s 2014 British Hairdresser of the Year.

The evening started with a trip down memory lane with a beautiful retrospective film that highlighted the achievements from the past 30 years.

While HJ’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr welcomed everyone to the Great Room, host for the night comedian and TV personality James Corden wowed the crowd with his insider jokes and impressions of the industry.

The night promised to be the most glittering event of the year – and it didn’t disappoint. Following a delicious three-course meal of smoked cheese arancini, fillet of Aberdeen Angus beef and lemon crème brulee the awards were underway. Jamie Stevens, Philip Bell, Bruno Marc Giamettei and Cos Sakkas were both inducted in to the Hall of Fame, for three wins each in the Men’s Hairdresser of the Year, Scottish Hairdresser of the Year, Southern Hairdresser of the Year and London Hairdresser of the Year categories, respectively.

The X Factor’s Union J were mobbed as they sang a medley of their hits including new single, You Got It All and a festive rendition of new track, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.
Before the coveted British Hairdresser of the Year was presented, the nominees – Akin Konizi, Angelo Seminara, Darren Ambrose, Errol Douglas, Gary Hooker and Michael Young, Jamie Stevens, Mark Hayes and Mark Leeson – showcased a spectacular show of beautiful and creative styling.
