Devon based mental wellbeing and suicide prevention charity, The Lions Barber Collective (LBC) launches the Collective Pride Awards. They will reward beauty, hair and barber professionals who are doing amazing things that would otherwise go unnoticed.
The Collective Pride Awards are the brainchild of Lion’s Barbers founder Tom Chapman. They recognise beauty, hair and barber professionals who go above and beyond the call of duty. They acknowledge thatthese industry professionals offer so much more than just personal care treatments.
It is now time that we celebrate those unsung heroes. If your barber, hairstylist or beautician is your hero we ask you to recognise their efforts,” says Founder, Tom Chapman
Collective Pride Awards will recognise the hard work of unsung hair and beauty heroes. They will honour those who deliver exceptional personal care services day in, day out; also those who go the extra mile to help others in a time of need, making a difference to lives.
The Awards ceremony itself will take place at the historic 700 year old site of the Barber Surgeon’s Hall, in the City of London on ‘Blue Monday’ in an effort to create a positive mood of celebration on the ‘most depressing day of the year’. The venue itself has been home to the livery company since the times of Henry VIII and even hosts an original Holbein painting of King Henry VIII with his Barber Surgeons. It has been 100’s of years since barbers put down the scalpel and ceased dabbling in physical health, but the hair & beauty industry has continued to be a kind ear and a shoulder for their clients and community, with the nation needing them more than ever in this post pandemic world.
