More than 50 major high street retail chains are demanding government tax cuts to protect themselves from growing business rates and online competition. The retailers, including Marks & Spencer, Harrods and Iceland, have written to UK chancellor Sajid Javid to request urgent reform to business rates in a bid to protect the high street and boost retail business as the country leaves the EU.

Hilary also said: “Salon and barbershop owners can help by writing to their local MPs to get their support for our campaign”

HELLEN WARD, Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa managing Director, told HJ it is essential for professional hair salons to lobby together for a level playing field: “…Until the government takes steps to ensure taxation is fair, the High Street is in peril, and that includes hair and beauty salons…”

Darren Ambrose, Sally Brooks, Errol Douglas, Gary Hooker & Michael Young, Cos Sakkas, Angelo Seminara, Eugene Souleiman and Jamie Stevens have wowed the British hairdressing industry, resulting in their nomination for the title.

Nominated by their peers on their professional reputation, vision and trend setting ability and their ability to promote and be an ambassador for British hairdressing.

The hair and beauty industry is worth an estimated £7.1 billion to the UK economy, with 82% of the female population across the country using a salon to have their hair cut and/or coloured each year. Since its inception, the title of HJ British Hairdresser of the Year has transformed exceptional stylists into household names with previous winners including Trevor Sorbie, John Frieda, Andrew Collinge, Umberto Giannini, Nicky Clarke, Charles Worthington, Mark Hill and Andrew Barton.

All eight nominees must now submit an exclusive collection to be judged by a panel of industry professionals in September before the winner is announced at a black tie ceremony in London’s Park Lane on Monday, 26th November. The nominees’ exclusive collections will be on display at Salon International, ExCeL London between 13th – 15th October 2018.
