Craig Chapman’s award-winning image
Last month I was lucky enough to attend the British Hairdressing Awards which took place at the Grosvenor Rooms in Mayfair, London. The event is like the Oscars of the hair industry, featuring hairstylists and salons across the country battling it out within several categories to see who is the swiftest with a pair of scissors. I love going to these events. Everyone really makes an effort, dressing up to the nines in glamorous finery.
This year the awards were hosted by comedian David Walliams. While I wouldn’t say I’m the greatest fan of Walliams, he proved to be quite a competent host, balancing professionalism with well timed jokes and banter.
Hey ladies and gents, just a quick one to let you know that the February/March 2013 issue of Blackhair is coming out on Thursday 10th January. Isn’t the cover gorgeous? It features model Rachael Williams, wearing a stunning modern beehive styled by Craig Chapman, who bagged the Afro Hairstylist of The Year at the British Hairdressing Awards with this very same hair collection (more on that soon). Other personal highlights include a feature on three women who implemented huge life changes, a relationship feature with the Brothers With No Game, and stylist Andree Marie from the salon, Sandra Webb demonstrating how to dye your locks purple to get the Azealia Banks look. Grab your copy from WhSmiths, Sainsbury’s and usual outlets.
