The winners of the british hairdressing awards 2022, sponsored by schwarzkopf professional are here! On Monday 28 November 2022 the winners of the British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional were crowned at the Grosvenor House Hotel, a JW Marriott hotel on London's Park Lane.

There were fabulous shows from sponsors Schwarzkopf Professional and the seven British Hairdresser of the Year nominees, as well as a performance by artist Professor Green.

But really, I want to pass this over to Paul - I’m so honoured to be able to give you this opportunity." Paul continued: "What do I say? I want to say thank you to Caroline, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be here, and thank you to the team. Thank you for my little salon, in the highlands of Scotland - this means a lot, we’re putting ourselves on the map. This is the second year in a row now, and we’re going to keep going."

North Eastern Hairdressers of the Year - Rick and Zoe Roberts, Rick Roberts

Southern Hairdresser of the Year - Andrew Smith, Andrew Smith Salons

Andrew said: "There are a few thank yous that I really need to remember, the first being our product brand we work so closely with, Milkshake Hair. Richard Miles is a magician - he always taps into your mind and shares your thoughts on paper, so I couldn’t have done it without him. I also want to say thank you to all the magazine editors, the PR teams and the marketing people, because we as hairdressers do these amazing things - these amazing shows - and without PR and magazines, no one would ever know about it. So, I’m gonna give a really big shout out to our PR, AJC."

Wales and South West Hairdresser of the Year - Steven Smart, Smartest 73

Steven said: "Thank god I wore this suit. This is my third award, and the Hall of Fame, so I am incredibly proud. Thank you so much to Schwarzkopf Professional and HJ for putting on such an incredible event, as always. Thank you to all the judges, and a big thank you to my amazing wife, who does the makeup and the styling for my collections."

Eastern Hairdresser of the Year - Rebecca Jacques, Daniel Granger Hairdressing 

Rebecca shared: "There’s so many people I want to thank. Firstly Jayne, HJ and Julian - but also to so many people in this room. Over the decade that I’ve stood in this room, so many of you have mentored me and inspired me, given me tough love, and advice I can pass down forever - so thank you. A massive shout out to all the finalists in my category: I studied your work at Salon International, and it was phenomenal, so it’s an honour to be in this category with you."

London Hairdresser of the Year - Jordanna Cobella, Cobella

Jordanna said: "Thank you to my amazing team at Cobella, my mum and my dad. Thank you to my amazing boyfriend - I know I’m very chaotic. To make not only our clients look good, but feel good, for me is special, and the emotional side of hairdressing to me is so special. People underestimate the emotional intelligence needed for this job. Well done to everyone in this room. We’re amazing."
