British Hairdressing Awards 2020

by | Dec 2, 2020

The annual British Hairdressing Awards took place virtually on 30th November, brought to us by Hairdressers Journal and Schwarzkopf Professional.

The British Hairdressing Awards 2020 were available to watch live on Facebook, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and British Beauty Council Advisory Board Member Jayne Lewis-Orr.


“2020 has been a year like no other. The pandemic has meant that salons have been closed for many months and we’re still dealing with the challenges it presents. Yet despite these difficult times, the hair industry has demonstrated yet again just how resourceful, creative and resilient it is. Tonight, is all about continuing that positivity as we join to celebrate the industry’s talent.” – Jayne Lewis-Orr, HJ Executive Director

We’ve just proved as an industry how resilient we are. I don’t think this award should have my name on it, it should have hairdressers everywhere on it – Hairdressers United! Thank you to my photographer friend Jenny Hands and to my team who are so supportive. A massive thank you to Jamie Brooks for supporting my ideas. We’re all really good friends, and everyone pulled it out of the bag this year. HJ and Schwarzkopf Professional you have done an incredible job tonight. Congratulations to everyone tonight – everyone deserves this award.”
