From July the NHBF invited nominations for the List – professionals currently working in the hairdressing, barbering, beauty, wellbeing or aesthetics industries. From an initial list of 250, an independent expert company then analysed these nominations based on the following data metrics to reach the Top 100.

  • Followers – the number of people following the nominees
  • Engagement – the number of mentions, shares, links and impressions of the nominees’ posts
  • Reach – how many people have seen the nominees’ posts

NHBF chief executive Richard Lambert says, “It was no surprise that Caroline Hirons came straight in at number one. She’s revered by her peers and the public for her straightforwardness and expert knowledge. The Top 100 Influencers List isn’t about numbers and reach but influence and engagement. Ours is one of the UK’s most social media aware industries and we wanted to pay homage to those who use their channels to share their knowledge and opinions, and those who promote our industry in such a positive way.”
