BHBA 2016 Winners

The best business brains in hairdressing have been named, as finalists for the annual industry awards are revealed.

For the last 19 years, Hairdressers Journal International has celebrated the business brains behind the country’s most trailblazing salons at the British Hairdressing Business Awards. The awards seek to find and celebrate the very best salon businesses in the country – an industry which contributes an estimated £7bn to the British economy and one which employs more than 300,000 people. With 17 categories celebrating all aspects of the business side of hairdressing, the awards are a proven platform for raising a salon’s profile. Even finalising in one of the prestigious categories marks a business out as one of the finest providers in the country; a win catapults them to the very top, providing unrivalled recognition that they are at the pinnacle of their profession and raising their profile to give an edge over competitors. Says HJ’s Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr: “Promoting professionalism, innovation and excellence, the British Hairdressing Business Awards recognise those individuals and teams who work tirelessly to raise the profile and stature of this industry, and make it one of which we can all be proud.

“Each year we’re amazed by the quality and diversity of applications. We’re proud to support an industry which continues to go from strength to strength and give credit to those achievers who are really making a difference to the business of hairdressing. As a visual industry, we’re quick to recognise those that create beautiful work, but we believe that it’s equally important to recognise those often-unsung heroes who work tirelessly behind the scenes and on the salon floor to make a tangible difference to the lives of their clients and team members.” For winners, it’s not just about a trophy and a stamp of approval – the awards make a real tangible difference to business. Last year, Andrew Price of the eponymous Welsh salon chain scooped the ultimate accolade of Business Director of the Year. He says: “[This win] represented validation from my peers and professionals within the industry for whom I have immense respect and whose success I aspire to emulate. From the perspective of the Andrew Price Group, the award brings with it a gravitas to support our claims of excellence. I have never been more inspired to raise the bar for my business and I actively encourage the same of all my employees.”

A win can also inspire the team, as Chloe Ascott from Hare & Bone, who won Salon Stylist of the Year in 2016 can attest. “Being recognised for my contribution to the industry was amazing, it’s also pushed me to the next level with my career at Hare & Bone. I have since been promoted to art director for the company, enjoying time with my clients, educating our apprentices and spending time with the team.” The categories at the awards cover all aspects of the business of hairdressing, from managers and directors to juniors and stylists. It also covers the efforts of salons in marketing, retail, customer care and even salon design – in short, it identifies and recognises every aspect of running a thriving salon.

figaro club

El 42% de las firmas participantes no son socias del Club Fígaro, lo que revela un alcance cada vez mayor del certamen dentro del sector de la peluquería española. Tras el cierre de la fase de presentación de colecciones, los Premios de la Peluquería Española han registrado de nuevo una altísima participación en su edición 2017, lo que indica la consolidación de esta convocatoria. En total, han participado en el certamen 72 firmas españolas, que han presentado un total de 140 colecciones, lo que prácticamente iguala las cifras de la anterior edición. Cada firma participante ha presentado una media de 1,9 colecciones, una cifra ligeramente más alta que en anteriores ediciones.

Además, ha aumentado el porcentaje de los participantes que no son socios del Club Fígaro. En concreto, dicho porcentaje fue del 35% durante el año 2015, mientras que durante el periodo 2016-2017 se alcanzó el 42%. La cifra muestra el impacto cada vez mayor del certamen en el sector de la peluquería española y la consolidación de la cita anual que suponen los Premios Fígaro, patrocinados por Revlon Professional desde sus inicios. En cuanto a zonas geográficas, las colecciones participantes se distribuyen por todo el país, con una especial presencia de Valencia, con 33 colecciones; Barcelona, con 17; Madrid con 15 y Alicante, con 9 colecciones.

estetica show

Ecco, in esclusiva, i primi dettagli sulla nuova Fiera dedicata al beauty, all’hairstyling, al nail e al wellness: Estetica Show 2017 a Pordenone.

Entra nel vivo l’organizzazione della nuova manifestazione dedicata alla bellezza e al benessere. Lo scenario è quello di un mercato vivace che, secondo l’indagine congiunturale di Cosmetica Italia, nel 2016 ha fatturato 10,5 miliardi di euro, (+5% rispetto al 2015), con esportazioni per quasi 4,3 miliardi (+12%). La bilancia dei pagamenti tocca un record per il settore con 2,1 miliardi. In aumento anche i consumi interni che con un +0,5% raggiungono un valore di 9,9 miliardi (l’Italia è al quarto posto a livello di consumi cosmetici europei).

Un settore composto da più di 100 mila imprese e da circa 200 mila addetti, calcolando quelli specificamente dedicati ai prodotti cosmetici e ai servizi alla persona (Beauty Report 2016 Cosmetica Italia), e un tasso di crescita delle imprese del comparto che tocca il 5.7% (Beauty Trend Watch Cosmetica Italia maggio 2017) E allora andiamo a scoprire le particolarità di Estetica Show, la tre giorni di expo, eventi e convegni, che si terrà dal 25 al 27 Novembre 2017 a Pordenone Fiere.

Il Nord Est è una zona strategica per numerosi tipi di attività ed imprese. Tra queste anche il mercato che ruota attorno alla cosmetica e al benessere: nel Nord Italia sono presenti il 59,5 % di centri estetici del Paese, vengono venduti oltre il 51% dei prodotti per la cura della persona ed il 52% circa dei prodotti cosmetici utilizzati e venduti nei canali professionali (Beauty Report 2016 Cosmetica Italia). Pordenone attira dunque un bacino di utenza che comprende sia le vicine regioni italiane, ma anche i Paesi esteri dell’area adriatica e Balcanica. Due aree: Estetica PRO, dedicata esclusivamente ai professionisti e al B2B, per testare, tra gli espositori, le dimostrazioni e i corsi di formazione, nuovi prodotti, attrezzature, tecnologie e tecniche per il mondo dell’estetica applicata del beauty, dall’hair styling alla skin care, dal nail al wellness. Estetica BOUTIQUE, aperta a tutti gli appassionati, per scoprire e acquistare prodotti di bellezza e partecipare agli eventi organizzati dalle scuole professionali e dalle aziende che porteranno le loro novità e la loro esperienza sul palco della manifestazione.

Temi di attualità: l’aggiornamento professionale è ciò che permette di stare al passo con le nuove esigenze del mercato. Per questo, durante le tre giornate, nell’area PRO si terranno workshop e conferenze dedicate ai professionisti. Un’occasione per conoscere i trend, le innovazioni, gli strumenti e le nuove competenze per far crescere la propria attività e la propria professionalità. Eventi: le due aree si animeranno di iniziative durante le tre giornate. Il calendario si arricchisce sempre di più per una vera immersione nelle novità del settore. Estetica Show aspetta tutti i professionisti e gli appassionati: gli aggiornamenti sugli espositori e sul programma delle tre giornate sul sito www.estetica.show.

alexandre de paris

Molti sono i ruoli che ha ricoperto nella vita delle sue clienti, ma, al secolo, Louis Alexandre Raimon ha soprattutto cambiato il modo di intendere il mestiere di acconciatore , elevandolo a livelli di perfezione mai raggiunti prima. Tra i suoi lavori più celebri troviamo gli chignon e numerosi tipi di intrecci creando delle vere e proprie forme d’arte.

Il suo stile innovativo fu apprezzato sia nel cinema che nella moda, da Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, che si avvalsero della sua creatività per valorizzare i loro abiti. Fra le affezionate clienti, invece, si contavano Romy Schneider, Maria Callas, Audrey Hepburn, Liza Minelli, Greta Garbo, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly e la duchessa di Windsor. E, nel 1963, De Paris creò quello che, forse, è l’hairstyle più famoso del cinema: la pettinatura di Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra.

Così Intercoiffure, l’associazione di parrucchieri più antica al mondo, di cui Alexandre de Paris fu presidente dal 1978 al 1993, ha deciso di svelare parte dei suoi bozzetti originali , disegni a matita delle acconciature da lui create, che, alla morte dell’hairstylist, nel 2008, furono affidati a Sergio Russo, e in seguito donate a ICD Italia. La mostra è ospitata nelle sale dell’Accademia L’Oréal Professionnel di Roma ed è aperta al pubblico fino al 30 giugno.
