Global Creative Awards 2022

Kao Salon Division’s Global Creative Awards 2022 for UK & Ireland took place Sunday night in quite an impressive venue – The Merchant Taylor’s Hall in central London with it’s stunning mediaeval interior and charming courtyard. A grand place to welcome all 300 guests who cheered on the finalists as they presented their models live on stage. 

And that wasn’t all, the grand final also included a trip back in time through the Goldwell and KMS journey with looks created for key years by the KMS hair team. Also supporting the extravaganza was a fabulous show from sustainability heroes and fashion designers Vin + Omi. It didn’t stop there… after the show and presentation, guests headed back to the courtyard to party – it really was an evening to remember!
