Thursday, 10 October 2019 10:21

The 2019-2020 AIPP Awards Presentation was held at ExCeL, London, during one of the most internationally renowned hairdressing events in the world, Salon International.

A global audience enthusiastically honoured the artistic achievements of internationally acclaimed hairstylists: Mark Leeson (UK), Angelo Seminara (UK), X-Presion (Spain), Jose Boix @ Toni&Guy (Spain) and Danny Pato (New Zealand).

The five winners received their trophies during a crowded presentation at HJ Stage hosted by Roberto Pissimiglia, AIPP President and Estetica Network Publisher; Jayne Lewis-Orr, Executive Director at Hairdressers Journal International / Salon International; and Maeve O’Healy Harte, AIPP Vice-President and Irish Hairdresser Magazine Publisher. This year, Salon International also hosted the AIPP Awards Gallery and the AIPP Meet&Greet, where winners and finalists had the opportunity to mingle with the international hairdressing community.

Later that evening, the AIPP also had the grand pleasure of presenting the coveted Hair Legend Award to Raffel Pages during the Alternative Hair Show. Pages was presented the award by Roberto Pissimiglia, President of the AIPP; Tony Rizzo, Alternative Hair Founder; Anthony Mascolo, Alternative Hair President; and Sergi Bancells, AIPP General Secretary. Raffel Pages is one of the most relevant names in modern hairdressing. Born in Barcelona, he has built an empire of more than 100 salons under his name and has created the biggest and most important Museum of Hairdressing in the world: from a lock of Napoleon’s hair to medieval hair combs, Raffel Pages’ collection contains over 14,000 hair-related objects.

The 23rd annual AIPP Awards Ceremony event included categories which celebrated the work of both hairdressers and teams. Mark Leeson (UK) won the Best Commercial Award for his beautiful collection ‘Clash Collection’. Angelo Seminara (UK) grabbed the Best Avant-Garde Award for his stunning collection ‘Imatat-o’. X-Presion (Spain) was the winner for the Best Color Award for their ‘Bauhaus’ collection featuring a fascinating hair colouring technique. ‘Rapsodia’ a collection by Jose Boix from Toni&Guy (Spain) consisted of stylish, fashionable men's styles that ultimately won the Best Men Award; and Danny Pato (New Zealand) conquered the Best Video Award for his awe-inspiring video showing his latest collection, ‘Tori’.
