2014 British Hairdressing Business Awards Finalists Announced!

On Monday 8th September, the winners of HJ’s 2014 British Hairdressing Business Awards will be announced at a prestigious ceremony held in the heart of London’s West End at the Lancaster London Hotel.

After an intense judging process, finalists have been chosen to represent the best in the business within their chosen discipline.

Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr comments, “We are extremely fortunate that hair professionals at all levels in the UK are intuitive, resourceful and creative in every sense of the word. They are passionate about their business and continually look to develop and improve what they do. The entries across all categories demonstrated a resourcefulness that many other industries could certainly benefit from.”

During the two day judging process, each entry is scrutinised by the sponsors of the categories along with key business associates and industry names that are respected for their vision and success. Entrants must demonstrate why they are leaders in their chosen discipline and provide evidence to back up their statements. Finalists from Junior, Manager, Business Director and the Salon Stylist category are invited to be formally interviewed by a chosen panel of experts, to confirm their place within the competition.

The winners will be announced by a leading media personality at a stylish black tie awards evening on Monday 8th September 2014 at the Lancaster London Hotel.
