Hosted by Katherine Ryan, Hairdressers Journal International Executive Director Jayne Lewis-Orr, Schwarzkopf Professional General Manager UK and Ireland, Julian Crane and Hairdressers Journal International Editor Charlotte Grant-West, the evening saw the 1400-strong audience entertained and inspired with a variety of entertainment. 

There were fabulous shows from sponsors Schwarzkopf Professional, Nick Irwin and the Schwarzkopf Professional Young Artistic Team as well as the eight British Hairdresser of the Year nominees, plus a performance by Abba tribute band Björn Again too.
