News added 11/01/18: HEADMASTERS AWARDS
We are thrilled to share our top delights from the Headmasters annual awards event in central London this week including confirmation that 1000+ of the group’s salon teams can party like there’s no tomorrow! And that the Headmasters Pro Artistic Team has learned to put on an excellent hairshow which wowed all spectators in the room. Importantly, handing out the best awards (£5000 for the top salon, a new car to the busiest colourist… you get our drift) directors at the group prove they take care of their ‘family’. We are struck by the numbers feted, and how they celebrate high achievers including dishing out accolades for individual hairdressers each bringing in more than £100K in revenue in 2017. Respect!
Headmasters report of their special night gives us the following round-up:
- Chairman John Sanders detailed Headmasters success of 2017 and expansion plans for 2018
- The Headmasters Pro Artistic Team used the room to best effect with an ‘interactive show’: a street-style presentation inspired by Gucci’s SS18 catwalk; the looks were raw and urban with a little cheekiness to boot. Morphing into glam rock meets moody goth, the hair was structured and based on the foundations of shape triangular, round and square. Culminating in an ode to sci-fi movies in the 90’s the overarching theme of celebrating shape and movement was refreshing and bold.
- The Business awards are judged on in-salon performance and included a brand new addition for 2017 The Big 5 (presented in conjunction with HSBC) with the winning salon Dorking scooping a massive £5000. The winner of Headmasters Bring On The Colour competition won a gorgeous a brand new Audi A1!
- Artistic awards included: The Ultimate Image Award, Mens Image Award, Christine Sanders Future Star Award, ghd Avant Garde Award and Colour Innovation Award (which were independently judged by well known industry figures including renowned barber Kevin Luchmun, Katie Allan, creative director at Charles Worthington, Karine Jackson, president at The Fellowship and Darren Oram, education director at L’Oreal Professionnel)
