Each year, Creative HEAD’s Most Wanted awards celebrate the most exciting, progressive and front-running talents in British and Irish hairdressing. With a re-vamped line-up for 2021, we were thrilled to receive a record number of entries across the 13 categories, collectively covering a spectrum of creative skill, teamwork and business brilliance.
On Monday 5 July we tasked leading names from within the industry and beyond to cast their expert eyes over this year’s epic offering. Experts from hair, beauty, fashion, media and business gathered at Lock Studios in East London to determine the 2021 finalists – and what a tough job job it was! So, a huge thanks to our elite judging panels – including the likes of salon pros Errol Douglas MBE and Christel Lundqvist, barbering genius Mark Maciver, session stylists Louis Byrne, Leigh Keates and Paul Percival, Most Wanted Legend Sophia Hilton, Sonia Haria of The Telegraph and the beauty director at Marie Claire, Lisa Oxenham – plus so many more, who were seriously impressed and impressively studious, throughout the tough process.
We’ll crown our 2021 winners at the Grand Final on Monday 6 September – we suggest you add it to your diary ASAP! Taking place at Printworks London, it’s set to be the hottest night of the hairdressing calendar, with stand-up genius Russell Kane as host. There will be hundreds of star-studded guests, copious cocktails and plenty of celebrating and entertainment. Trust us, you won’t want to miss a thing.
Before revealing the Most Wanted finalists of 2021, it’s important we take a moment to say THANK YOU you to everyone who took the time to enter. We are in awe of your talent, grateful for your support and blown away by this year’s standards. Keep. It. Coming!
And so, the time has come, to reveal the 70 Most Wanted finalists vying for a coveted Most Wanted title. Massive congratulations to all those named; we’re counting down the days until we can celebrate with you September’s Grand Final! Best get planning that party outfit, pronto…
