Great Lengths Masters 

Great Lengths has announced its 2023 Great Lengths Masters; four of the most creative and technically skilled extensionists from across the UK and Ireland. Great Lengths selected this year’s Masters after a rigorous judging process, where entrants from all over the UK and Ireland showed off their passion and talent.

Great Lengths Masters 2023 are: 

  • Hadley Yates at Hadley Yates Salon, London 
  • Linda Thornton at Lynda T Hairdressing, Dublin
  • Jade Hobster at Hair Extensions by Jade, Nottingham
  • Katie Hemming at Love Hair, Broadway

Great Lengths revealed the results at the GLammies 2023; the brand’s annual awards event which celebrates the industry’s most talented extensionists. The Masters will now work alongside the Great Lengths team to create the next national UK & Ireland campaign for the brand.

‘Great Lengths Masters represent the crème de la crème of extensions technicians working throughout the UK and Ireland’ says Joscelin McCourt, CEO of HB Collective, the home of Great Lengths. ‘Our winners have demonstrated an unparalleled understanding of their craft, as well as the passion and technical skill to create extensions work that excites and inspires. I can’t wait to see them bring their ideas to life on our next campaign.’
