Lockdown? Pah! Nothing comes between creative, artistic and business brilliance and the Most Wanted 2020 awards!

On Monday 6 July some of the biggest names in the hair, beauty and fashion industries gathered at Lock Studios in East London (all at a suitable distance, of course!) to judge the record number of entries that were received for this year’s 20th anniversary competition. Under scrutiny: 14 categories, hundreds of images, thousands of words, some incredible videos – and an outpouring of passion, ambition and skill at the highest level.

To Sam McKnight, John Vial, Claudia Croft (10 Magazine), Sonia Haria (The Telegraph), Lisa Farrall, Tyler Johnston, Matt Robinson, Louise Gray (Central Saint Martins), Alice Hart-Davis, Neil Moodie, Joely Walker (Grazia), Shannon Peter (Stylist) and dozens more fell the monumentally tough task of singling out the forerunners in each category. Silence reigned, brows were furrowed; this was a challenge that required total focus.

Before revealing our Most Wanted finalists of 2020, we want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who entered. We love what you do, and you do it all so well.

But now, it’s time to reveal the 75 names who’ve earned their place at the 2020 Most Wanted Grand Final on Sunday 29 November…
