British Hairdressing Awards 2020 to Go LIVE Online to a Global Audience
HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, is going live online to a global audience for the first time in its 36-year history.
“As the prospect of ‘live’ events continues to be shrouded with uncertainty, we have made the positive decision to keep to our date of Monday 30th November and in the style of the world’s biggest events in 2020, we shall hold the awards online. With the British Hairdressing Awards being THE hairdressing event of the year, we feel strongly that it should go ahead and we are confident we can still celebrate together but in the 2020 way,” comments HJ’s executive director Jayne Lewis-Orr.
Each and every year since its inception, the British Hairdressing Awards event has been held in the Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, attracting 2,000 guests including 100 finalists in 17 categories. As the event moves onto a virtual stage, the 2020 awards format is representative of both the current times and also reflective of the dynamism and creativity of an industry that adapts and embraces change.
“We know that together we shall make this event one to remember for all of the right reasons, and we look forward to a global and unlimited audience joining us to celebrate the very best of British hairdressing. This is a chance to reach more people and celebrate British hairdressing worldwide and we are excited to be part of this for the 36th year!,” commented Julian Crane, General Manager, Henkel Beauty Care UK & Ireland.
