BHAs 2017: Meet the Winners!

Tuesday, 28 November 2017 15:12

The 16 winners of  the  2017 British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, were announced in style last night at London's sumptuous Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.

The star-studded ceremony took place on Monday 27 November at London’s Grosvenor House, hosted by TV presenter Cat Deeley. More than 1,500 of the top hairdressing talent from across the country attended the awards, which is a celebration of the most creative and technically-gifted hairstylists in Britain.

Each entrant must submit a series of images demonstrating not only their technical dexterity, but their creative vision and comprehension of current trends. Looks must be wearable and beautiful, as well as pushing the boundaries and limitations of hairdressing to showcase the pinnacle of a hairstylist’s creativity. Finalists are then judged, twice, by a panel consisting of hairdressing legends, leading national beauty press and past winners of the awards who have since joined the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame; an accolade presented to those who win the same category on more than three occasions.

Talent was recognised across 16 categories, covering both regional entries representing the whole of Great Britain and specialist collections including men’s hairdressing, avant-garde work and colour. The ultimate accolade on the night is British Hairdresser of the Year which, this year, was awarded to Sally Brooks for her inspirational work and contribution to the industry as a whole.

Sally Brooks is the first female winner of the award since 2005, and led a charge of women picking up awards on the night – more than half of the trophies were awarded to female stylists.

Facing a standing ovation, an emotional Sally said: “I never thought I’d be standing on stage accepting this award, especially as I was up against such amazing hairdressers that I respect so much. Thank you to my amazing team and the support they give to me and each other, and thank you to my photographer, Jenny Hands. She was the first photographer I worked with back when we were test shooting. I couldn’t have done this without her!”
