British Hairdressing Awards 2014: Finalists Announced!

The anticipation is finally over! Finalists for HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2014 have been announced, after a long round of some tough judging.

HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional were launched to recognize and reward hairdressers who were pushing the boundaries of hairdressing, creating and setting the trends for others to follow and excelling in this creative and competitive industry.

Each of the entries in the nine regional and six specialist categories were anonymously judged by some of the industry’s leading names and faces, including Hall of Fame members and past and present winners of HJ‘s British Hairdresser of the Year.

The finalists will now submit four images which will go continue to the second round of judging, and the winners will be announced at the British Hairdressing Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, on November 24.
