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.
Greetings and salutations my dear friends. Happy September! I absolutely LOVE the month of September, it’s fast surpassing June and July as my favourite time of year. We’re always treated to days of unexpected sunshine (can I get an Amen for the soaring temperatures in London last weekend?), it’s back to school time so everything feels sparkly and new, and the rails of new Autumn/Winter fashions tend to soften the blow of the impending season of gloom. Speaking of brand spanking new, check out the cover for the next issue of my other lil baby – Blackhair magazine. Isn’t it gawjus? Gracing the front cover is the adorable, Sherene McNichol whose hair was styled by Erika Selvaggio, the recently crowned MIZANI Colour Trophy Look Award Winner. See below for images from the rest of our winner’s shoot with Erika, and do ensure you pick up a copy of the mag on Thursday when it comes out.
