Kevin McNamee is the CEO of Denman International. He shared, “As a British brand that designs and manufactures tools here in the UK, we are proud to sponsor the GB Hair Team. Each of these professionals already has busy working lives. However, they commit to pouring even more passion and energy into organizing, training and competing at the highest level of their craft. Denman is playing its part by offering quality professional tools to support the trainers and competitors. Moreover, it is our incredible privilege to do so. We wish them the best of luck as they carry the flag for Great British Hairdressing onto the world stage.”

“Centres of Excellence” for a star-studded roster

Adam Gregory has created a network of ‘Centres of Excellence’ in colleges around the UK. His ambitious mission is to build a legacy plan for the future of the GB Hair Team. More specifically, the plan is to focus on training and the creation of the Junior GB Team.

The UK regional heats for Junior and Senior teams will take place in these Centres of Excellence in April/May 2023. Then the National Great British Hairdressing Championships will take place at Central Hall in Southampton on May 27th and 29th 2023. This national competition will select four squads of 24. Categories are Junior Ladies and Junior Men’s for Under 23 and Senior Ladies and Senior Men’s for Over 23. Later, after an intense training period, 12 hair professionals from each category will be selected. These 12 will form the final GB Hair Team to compete at the OMC World Hairdressing Championships in September 2023. Denman will provide each trainer and competitor comprehensive tool kits and bespoke GB Hair Team branded Original Stylers.
