On Wednesday 1 May 2019, Christian was invited to attend the Hair & Beauty Community Awards run by the National Hairdressers Federation and the National Beauty Federation (NHF/NBF).
Christian, who is very proud of his role as first ever Men’s Hairdresser & Barber ambassador, joined the inspirational finalists and the awesome NHF team for a splendid reception held at the impressive Houses of Parliament. The awards were launched in 2019 to recognise and promote the fantastic work hair salons, barbershops and beauty salons do to support their local communities.
Christian says: ‘What a tremendous honour to be invited to attend this awards ceremony to celebrate the real heroes in our industry. As always, the amazing team at The NHF organised an inspirational and thought-proving event that paid tribute to some fantastic salon owners and their teams who have done some amazing fund raising for charities within their local communities’ He continues ‘A spectacular building and a phenomenal celebration organised by Hilary and her team! Well done to all the finalists and the NHF team!’
Kelly Tolhurst, Minister for Small Business, Paul Uppal, the Small Business Commissioner, Mark Pawsey and many other MPs attended the Hair & Beauty Community Awards to learn more about the sector and their contribution to high streets. The reception was also attended by hair and beauty business owners from across the country who were invited to attend as a result of entering the awards.
