Joseph Ferraro Hair in Harrogate has been shortlisted for two top awards at HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2022, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional. Owner, Joseph Ferraro has reached the finals in the Trend Images of the Year category as well as the coveted regional award, North Eastern Hairdresser of the Year, along with stylist Rita Tuska.
Now in their 38th year, the awards are an annual celebration of hairdressing excellence, recognising the remarkable achievements of stylists from across the United Kingdom. Regional categories honour the finest hairdressing talent from across Britain with a separate category for International Collection of the Year, while seven specialist categories reward specific areas of hair expertise including Afro, Men’s, Avant Garde and Colour. New for 2022 is the Session Hairdresser of the Year award which is by nomination only and see the very best stylists from the world of session put forward their favourite images of the last 12 months. The most anticipated award of the evening – British Hairdresser of the Year* – is by nomination only and is widely regarded as the industry’s greatest accolade.
Judged anonymously by over 100 leading hairdressers (including celebrity stylists, session stylists, salon owners, previous winners and Hall of Fame** members), all winners will be announced at a Black-Tie event to be held on Monday 28th November at Grosvenor House, a J W Marriott Hotel on London’s Park Lane.
Joseph and Rita submitted four photographic images per category, demonstrating the breadth of their hairdressing expertise, showcasing evidence of both technical skill and creative ability. They will now submit a further four images for the final round of judging, which takes place in September. Both stages of judging are strictly and independently audited and verified.
This is such a proud moment for us.
These awards always bring together such exceptional talent and to see my name alongside those shortlisted is mind-blowing.
We’d love to bring a trophy back to Harrogate and hope the judges will recognise the love and hard work that has gone into our collections.
