Angelo Seminara (UK) has been crowned absolute winner at the last edition of the AIPP GRAND TROPHY 2015-2016, the second time in the last 5 years for this brilliant hairdresser to win the most renowned award in the hairdressing industry worldwide.

The AIPP Grand Trophy Award Ceremony was carried out yesterday on the Davines Area, at this weekend's Cosmoprof Worldwide trade fair in Bologna, Italy. The Davines Area was chosen in recognition of the fact that Angelo Seminara is Global Artistic Director for the brand since 2011.

Considered the International Oscar of Hairdressing, this most famous of all hair trophies voted for by the world’s professional press, was handed over to its winner by Roberto Pissimiglia, AIPP President and Sergi Bancells, AIPP General Secretary. Angelo acknowledged that he was very proud to be recognized by the editors of the best professional magazines in the world and shared his excitement with the audience. “I can’t describe what an immense joy this is for me, even though I don't show so much on the outside, I am so flattered,” said Angelo.

Angelo Seminara began his career as a trainee Barber in his home town in Italy at the age of 11. Five years later he moved to Rome to take up a job with Toni&Guy, but with his sights firmly set on London he became Trevor Sorbie’s protégé in 1995 and went on to become his International Creative Director, captivating clients and inspiring the work of hair professionals around the world with his creative drive and passion. In 2010 Angelo went freelance and has since worked globally on shows and seminars, working closely with session stylist Eugene Souleiman developing an incredible reputation on the catwalk circuit each season working on shows in New York, London, Paris and Milan.

In January 2011 Angelo started as the new Art Director for Davines Spa. Angelo has been an integral part of Davines. The role of Artistic Director has seen him involved in international events such as World Wide Hair Tour and Hair on Stage, and in the development of the Davines Collections. Wholly absorbed in his work and delighting in the creation of new shapes and textures, Angelo consistently pushes the boundaries. Seeing hair as a fabric and remaining captivated by the possibilities of hair, Angelo is adept at bringing out every client’s natural beauty affording him an impressive celebrity client list and regular commissions for editorial work for many of the world’s leading fashion and style magazines.
