Hair and Barber Council Announces Student of the Year

Wednesday, 09 October 2019 10:04

The Hair and Barber Council held its Student of the Year competition at Salon International. Seven finalists for Level 2 and six finalists for Level 3 recreated their looks live in the Competition Area.

The competitors had 50 minutes to recreate the look they entered earlier this year – with the chance to win a day with Cos Sakkas from TONI&GUY, a day with Andrew Barton from Headmasters and to appear in the next issue of the Hair and Barber magazine.  Judges for the finals were Chancellor of Fellowship for British Hairdressing Ashleigh Hodges, Yesmin O’Brien from seanhanna and Junior Council member Niall McNulty.

“We were delighted with the level of entries we received this year and was amazed by the quality of hairdressing by the students taking part,” said Hair and Barber Council CEO and Registrar, Keith Conniford. “It’s important for us to support future stylists of the industry and ensure they are aware of the importance of State Registration for hairdressers and barbers to keep the industry professional and raise the perception of the industry.”
