Schwarzkopf Professional recently snapped up the opportunity to be the official hair partner of the BAFTA Television Awards in partnership with P&O Cruises.
Participation at the BAFTA Television Awards is part of Schwarzkopf Professional’s Partners in Craft initiative. Its goals are to partner with live events. This gives hairdressing talent an opportunity to be part of the glamorous action, those ‘money can’t buy’ opportunities. With the rise of award events, working backstage on celebrities and VIP guests has become a popular additional source of profile building for hairdressers. It is also a way to work in a differently invigorating environment in which to develop skills.
“We are passionate about championing hairdressing talent and have grown a reputation in partnering with the industry’s most exciting salons whilst developing ranges that bring the most innovative technologies and latest trends directly to the hairdressers’ hands to do the work that only they do best,” commented Head of Marketing for Henkel Consumer Brands Professional UK & Ireland, Annamarie Freeman. “So, when we were offered the chance to partner as hair experts on the BAFTA event we immediately thought of putting a team together lead by Philipp Haug who brings an incredible mix of classic and contemporary skills, the results speak for themselves.”
In-demand Schwarzkopf Professional education ambassador and former London Hairdresser of the Year, Philipp Haug drew on his 20 years’ industry experience, also regularly backstage backstage at London Fashion Week to lead the team and ensure that every guest left feeling their glamorous best-self.
“It was a great experience working with the BAFTA team in the preparation for the awards, high energy, super organised and a lot of fun,” added Philipp Haug, Haug London Haus & Schwarzkopf Professional Brand Ambassador. “The day was a fantastic opportunity to lead a team of incredible hairdressers from both Schwarzkopf Professional and Haug London Haus. And of course, It was great to meet so many nominees backstage and to look after TV icons like Daisy May Cooper”.
The team working with Philipp brought together a wealth of incredible skills and experience with eight other outstanding hairdressing specialists in their field including Adrian Paoluccio, Christopher Laird, Dan Joy, Darcey Clarke, Dora Lioli, Julian Marques, Marzen Cielen and Vishali Visavadia. This incredible BAFTA TV styling squad worked backstage creating looks on Ellie Taylor and Daisy May Cooper and Chloe Lloyd along with a host of other VIP guests who visited the style suite.
