First Salon Services Professional Hair & Beauty Awards

Published 14th Feb 2024 by Josie Jackson

On Monday 12 February 2024, hair and beauty professionals, expert judges, influencers, creators and press gathered to celebrate some of the best products and brands in the industry at the first ever Salon Services  Professional Hair & Beauty Awards.

Taking place at The Century in London, the awards were hosted by beauty entrepreneur, journalist and influencer Ateh Jewel, who brought her effervescent energy and passion for the industry to the stage. Ateh was also joined on stage by the inspirational founder of Salon Services' charity partner the Little Princess Trust, Wendy Tarplee-Morris, who attended with her co-founder Phil Brace. Wendy shared her story and the amazing work that the Little Princess Trust does to give ‘Hair and Hope’ to thousands of children and young people. Wendy also recognised the huge role that hair professionals play in helping the charity offer wigs for those battling cancer.

Dara Goolsby, Senior Director of Marketing at Salon Services, said: “It was a fantastic evening. We wanted to create a moment to recognise the products that support every hair and beauty professional and the brands that work so hard to create them. We are so grateful to everyone that got involved, including our amazing expert panel that took a deep dive and tested the products nominated. We look forward to making these awards an annual celebration.”

There were eight categories including Haircare, Hairstyling, Colour, Nails, Beauty, Vegan, Tools, Innovation and two dedicated Community Awards. You can check out the winners of the hair categories below, or to see the full list of winners, head to the Salon Services website here.
