What a night! Another successful Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards has come and gone, with salons and stylists from around the country earning the right to call themselves the best of the best.

A truly fabulous event on Sunday 10th September saw over 500 of our sector’s most talented people come together to celebrate at the Marriott Hotel in Glasgow. From Best Blowdry to Best Salon Design, and everything in between, almost 30 awards were handed out on the night.

Hosted by the ever-glamorous Josie Smith and former River City star Gary Lamont, the night lived up to every expectation. Top industry names including Errol Douglas MBE, Fellowship President Karine Jackson, and Wahl’s European Artistic Director Simon Shaw were on hand to present awards to the delighted winners, following a four-course dinner and live entertainment. Simon was also the proud recipient of the inaugural Industry Icon award, while Alan and Linda Stewart picked up the Lifetime Achievement award for establishing Rainbow Room International as one of the jewels of the hair and beauty industry in Scotland.

The celebrations lasted well into the early hours, as winners and finalists alike celebrated another incredible year. Now they can relax and enjoy the prestige and interest that comes from being part of the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards.

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year, with the first stages of the 2018 awards beginning in February.
