The news is still sinking in that our Salon owner Christian Wiles has been shortlisted for the title of Men’s Hairdresser of the Year at HJ’s prestigious British Hairdressing Awards 2019.
The recognition comes after Christian’s phenomenal male hairstyling captivated the imagination of more than 100 hair industry judges. He is one of just six specialist men’s hairdressers to be chosen for this accolade after entries were submitted from across the United Kingdom.
Christian’s striking collection of four trend-led images stood out for its remarkable hairdressing techniques. In the hope of taking home the title, he will submit a further four images for the second round of judging in September, before the winner is announced at the awards ceremony in November.
Christian says: “Men’s hair is just as versatile as women’s, and there is so much fantastic styling that can be done on shorter hair. I’m delighted to be recognised. ”
Commenting on the announcement, Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards said; “To be named as a finalist in the Men’s Hairdresser of Year category highlights just how exceptional Christian is. His hairstyling demonstrated fantastic skill and vision, and rightly gives him the acknowledgement as one of the UK’s best hairdressers.”
“Britain has long had a world-class reputation for trend-setting in the hairdressing industry, and Christian proves that this renowned creativity and excellence is still at the heart of the British hair scene. His exceptional work epitomises this tradition of brilliant innovation.”
