An Arnold hair salon is celebrating after one of its top stylists recently made it through to the “Oscars of the hairdressing world”- the British Hairdressing Awards.
Helen Stilwell, from KH Hair in Arnold, stood out from hundreds of entries to make it through in the Eastern Hairdresser of the Year category.
Now in their fourth decade, the awards, hosted by Hairdressers Journal International, and supported by Schwarzkopf Professional, continue to go from strength-to-strength in their aim to celebrate the most diverse and creative of talents in hairdressing.
KH Hair Group Managing Director, Darren Messias, said: “These awards seek to celebrate the very best of British hairdressers, awarding them for their artistic flair and technical skill. This is the second time in three years we have made it to the final and we are thrilled for Helen who has worked so hard to put together some stunning creations.”
Helen is one of the leading members of KH Hair’s Art Team and is regularly involved in session work, shoots, and major industry shows.
Commenting on her success, she said: “I am extremely proud to have been shortlisted for our region. I class the British Hairdressing Awards as one of the hardest competitions in the industry as we are up against some amazingly talented hairdressers so, to get this far, is a massive achievement.”
The winners of the Eastern Hairdresser of the Year and 15 other categories will be announced at The British Hairdressing Awards which will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Monday, November 27.
