TONI&GUY, a name to reckon with in the hairdressing industry, won 4 awards at HJ’S most coveted British Hairdressing Awards sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional. Held at the Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel on London’s Park Lane, the prestigious award ceremony took place on 27th November 2023.

Now in its 39th year, the award ceremony witnessed a significant presence of 1400 strong audience of hairdressing peers, influencers and press.

Apart from the international names, Indian hairdressers like Savio John Periera, Srinivasan Subramani Latha Mohan, Spoorthy Shetty, Aalim & Shano Hakim were some of the popular names who graced the event with their presence. Celebrity host, Katherine Ryan was joined by Hairdressers Journal International’s Executive Director, Jayne Lewis-Orr and Julian Crane, General Manager for Henkel Consumer Brands Hair Professional UK & Ireland.

These were adjudged by 100 leading hairdressers (including celebrity stylists, session stylists, previous winners and Hall of Fame* members).
