“I keep a document with me to write down things that catch my attention: an haircut, a piece of forniture, a film clip. Once a month, I read it and see a connection between all the elements and I develop all of my ideas from there.”
World renowned ‘Oscars’ of the hair world, HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, took place on Monday night with 18 winners announced, and three inductions into the Hall of Fame.

Each November, HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, recognises the very best talent in the UK hairdressing industry.
The awards celebrate the stand-out styling stars across 18 categories in total, recognising achievement in both regional and specialist fields. For those lucky enough to win the same category on three separate occasions, a prestigious honour is bestowed; a place in the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame. Once in the Hall of Fame, a hairdresser is no longer allowed to enter that category, having reached the very pinnacle of talent in that field.

TONI&GUY Italia, candidato a numerosi premi e finalista nella categoria di “Business Innovation of the Year”, si è aggiudicato due importantissimi riconoscimenti: “Brand Excellence”, consegnato a Londra dal CEO del gruppo Nigel Darwin e “Salon Design of The Year” per il salone flagship di Via Vincenzo Monti (MILANO).
BRAND EXCELLENCE è un riconoscimento importantissimo al brand ed al lavoro di tutta la famiglia TONI&GUY Italia.
SALON DESIGN OF THE YEAR è un premio notevole sia per il brand che per il salone flagship di Milano in Via Vincenzo Monti, che arriva a distanza di un anno dalla ristrutturazione che l’ha fatto diventare uno spazio completamente innovativo, creando un nuovo e moderno Salon Concept, incentrato completamente su di un concept HOMEY FEELING con una cura assoluta verso il cliente. Per il re-styling del salone sono stati scelti partner tecnici di altissima qualità come L’ORÉAL PROFESSIONEL, LABEL M., DYSON e TAKARA BELMONT, tra i migliori sul mercato.
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.
The British Retail Consortium who organised the letter said high street vacancy rates have risen to 10.3% the highest since 2015.
The National Hairdressers Federation has campaigned hard for reforms to business rates for professional hair salons, barbershop and beauty salons. NHF chief executive HILARY HALL told HJ: “A recent survey of our members shows around two thirds don’t pay business rates because they quality for small business rates relief. Often these reliefs are short-term and temporary so we’re calling for them to be made permanent, as they are in Wales, to help small businesses plan ahead”
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…”
