Oh what a night! Over 300 guests travelled from across the globe to London’s Quaglino’s for the 2022 Salon Business Awards on Monday night.
Salon Business Publishing Editor Joanne Charlton said: “This was the biggest and best SBAwards Grand Final yet. It was fantastic to bring the elite of the industry together in fantastic surroundings, with inspiring entries, fine wine, and first class entrainment from No 1 Saxophonist Brendan Mills.
Each of the winners represent the dedication and passion that make this industry so great to be a part of.”
The winners were selected following a 6 month-long competition that saw the elite of hairdressing pit themselves against their peers across a number of credentials from green initiatives to business acumen. The winners were announced at the Grand Final, held at one of London’s top music venues.
On arrival guests were treated to Prosecco and canapés, with Brendan Mills on the Sax and had time to network. At around 8pm, Joanne Charlton welcomed the crowd as images of each of the 111 finalists flashed on the screen, then it was time to thank the judges and announce the winners. Joanne was joined onstage by Remi Cachet’s Victoria Lynch, Kao Salon Division UK’s Julie Winchester, Vin+Omi, CleanIt’s Becky Travers, Unite ambassador Narad Kutowaroo, Joico’s Vicky Brown, Salon Europe’s Jane Wanniaratchy, Schwarzkopf Professional’s Ed Mosley, iSalon’s Mike Waldon, Indola’s Richard Thomasson and the multi award-winning Andrew Barton.
