british hairdressing awards 2020

HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards is going live to a global audience for the first time in its 36-year history. “As the prospect of ‘live’ events continues to be shrouded with uncertainty, we have made the positive decision to keep to our date of Monday 30th November and in the style of the world’s biggest events in 2020, we shall hold the awards online. With the British Hairdressing Awards being THE hairdressing event of the year, we feel strongly that it should go ahead and we are confident we can still celebrate together but in the 2020 way,” comments HJ’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr.

Each and every year since its inception, the British Hairdressing Awards event has been held in the glorious surroundings of the Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London attracting 2,000 guests including 100 finalists in 17 categories culminating in the most coveted of all titles, British Hairdresser of the Year. As this spectacular moves onto a virtual stage, the 2020 awards format is representative of both the current times and also reflective of the dynamism and creativity of an industry that adapts and embraces change.
