Your Exclusive Access to HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards Gallery at Salon International 2019!

Salon International is the place to be when it comes to getting hairdressing inspiration, and one of the best spots to do just that is in HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards Gallery, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional.
In this prestigious area, you’ll be able to see beautiful, inspirational hairdressing collections from every finalist in the British Hairdressing Awards, as well as the captivating work from the acclaimed names nominated for British Hairdresser of the Year.

Each finalist produces a collection of beautiful imagery for their entry, showcasing the country’s leading talent in cut, colour and styling. As well as Regional awards recognising hairdressers from across the country, there are also specialist categories for Afro hair, Artistic Team of the Year, Avant Garde, Men’s, Newcomer and Schwarzkopf Professional British Colour Technician Of The Year – meaning there truly is something for everyone. And, this year, there are two new categories to inspire attendees – Trend Image of the Year, for a single shot produced by a hairdresser aged under 30, and International Collection of the Year, for those working outside of the UK.

With such a wealth of talent on display, there’s no end of inspiration to be found in the Gallery – which is also the first time anybody in the world has the opportunity to see the images. Whether you’re an entrant yourself, dreaming of shooting your own collection one day, or simply want to take a look at the trends in hairdressing from across the UK and the world, this is one space at Salon International not to be missed.

HJ’s Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr says: “The British Hairdressing Awards Gallery, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional at Salon International is one of the most popular destinations at the show. Within the hushed, dramatic space of the Gallery, you can see work from some of the most exciting names in hairdressing – from industry icons like Eugene Souleiman and reigning British Hairdresser of the Year, Sally Brooks, to the inspiring and captivating work by those shortlisted for Newcomer of the Year. It’s a place that’s packed full of incredible hairdressing, and truly showcases the talent in this industry. It is so exciting to walk through the Gallery, and I love to hear what’s being said by those visiting and taking it all in. We can’t wait to showcase the finalists this year, and hope that every visitor finds time to get lost in this truly inspirational space.”

Salon International takes place at ExCeL London from 5th-7th October 2019.
