The talented winners of the GLammies by Great Lengths have been revealed at a glittering ceremony in the City of London. On Monday 21st March we put on our glad rags and attended the black tie event at The Steel Yard near Cannon Street.
Now in its 10th year, the GLammies by Great Lengths 2021/22 recognise the UK and Irelands most talented extensionists and celebrate the craft, creativity and business of hair extensions. The awards were hosted by How To Cut It podcast founder Dom Lehane and included a drinks reception, three-course dinner and after party – what fun we had!
Trophies were awarded across a total of 16 categories comprised of six specialist categories, regional awards, an award for charitable work and the most prestigious title of the night – the Great Lengths Trophy for Extension Excellence – awarded to an extensionist who has demonstrated outstanding work.
In addition to a coveted GLammies trophy, all winners also received tickets for a tour of the Great Lengths production factory in Rome, with two nights five-star accommodation, meals and internal transfers for two people – pretty amazing right? The prize package also includes social media coverage and PR opportunities across both trade and local press, ensuring that winners can publicise their recognition as the best in the industry.
‘Once again, the GLammies by Great Lengths have shone a spotlight on the remarkable extensionists we have working in our incredible industry’ says Joscelin McCourt, HB Collective CEO (home of Great Lengths hair extensions). ‘The standard of entries improves year on year and the 2021 winners should feel particularly proud to have beaten such fierce competition. Their creativity, passion and precision are an inspiration and we are delighted to acknowledge and celebrate their talent.’
