Local hairdresser and barber and Owner of Essensuals Toni & Guy Billericay has just received the incredible news that he has finalised for the International Hairdressing Awards for the Best International Men’s Commercial Collection.
The International Hairdressing Awards was created by a hairdresser for hairdressers and was founded with the aim of giving hairdressing the prestige it deserves and showcasing the business in its rightful place, one where talent, art and creativity are recognised and values.
The awards are one of the most important awards in the industry worldwide, which recognises the best hairdressers in the world, while at the same time awakening new vocations, discovering new talents and giving the best international professionals the prominence they deserve.
For Jim to finalise for the awards is an incredible achievement, being up against so many hairdressers from around the world. To finalise, Jim had to submit four commercial men’s images, which were then assessed by a jury panel prior to deciding on the finalists for the Best International Men’s Commercial Collection category. Prior to the final, the three finalists selected will have their collection scored by the five members of jury with the winner being announced at the awards ceremony on the 3rd February 2019.
The ceremony will feature a purple carpet (to fit in with the International Hairdressing Awards branding) and catwalk show with some of the most renowned hairdressing brands in the world.
As 7 times finalist and Winner 2007 of The Men’s British Hairdressing Awards we asked Jim how it feels to be in the final again and to now be recognised Internationally,
“It is always a great honor to have your work recognised by such an amazing institution as The British Hairdressing Awards that do so much for our industry. To then be included in the final 3 for the International Hairdressing Awards was a dream come true and I am so excited and extremely proud to be representing Great Britain in Madrid early next year.”
