Scratch Star Awards: The Winners

by | Jul 26, 2021

The 2020/21 Scratch Stars Award winners have been announced!

The Scratch Star Winners were revealed live at the Scratch Stars Party on Sunday 25 July, held at the London Cabaret Club, Proud Embankment.

 

Shining Star Award – Lisa Wells (posthumously) 

The Scratch Stars Awards recognised Lisa, who sadly passed away from cancer. Lisa was an esteemed educator and nail professional, who had dedicated time to judging the awards on behalf of INK London in previous years, and ignited the industry with her Lisa’s Army movement to support Dorothy House hospice.

 

Hall Of Fame 

In 2018, three techs entered the Hall Of Fame owing to three wins each in the same category. When the 2019 winners were announced, there were two further additions to the Hall Of Fame who were recognised at the Scratch Stars Party on 25 July. Once Hall Of Fame status has been awarded, the pro or business cannot enter that category again, but can choose to either enter different categories or become a Scratch Stars judge:

  • METTA FRANCIS Ultimate Mobile Nailist
  • NAF! SALON Ultimate Social Media Star
