Senior stylist of Bracknell salon makes headlines with British Hairdressing Awards nomination
If you are a customer of Marc Antoni in Bracknell you know your hair is in good hands – the senior stylist of the Berkshire salon has been shortlisted for a national hairdressing competition.
Now in their 38th year, the HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2022, are an annual celebration of excellence, recognising the achievements of stylists from across the country.
Paola Giamattei has reached the finals in the Newcomer of the Year category and now awaits his fate at a black-tie event on November 28th at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.
The stylists submitted four photographs each 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.
“This is such a proud moment for us”
Paolo was nominated alongside his fellow Marc Antoni stylist, Daniel Spiller, manager at the Fleet salon who has reached the finals of the Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Technician of the Year category.
“This is such a proud moment for us,” said Daniel. “These awards always bring together such exceptional talent and to see our salon and our names alongside those shortlisted is mind-blowing. This is the third time I have finalised in the colour category so it really is an honour.”
Paolo added: ‘We’d love to bring a trophy or two back to Marc Antoni and hope the judges will recognise the love and hard work that has gone into our collections.”
Jayne Lewis-Orr, Executive Director of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards said: “Every year, HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards serve as a reminder of the passion, artistry and expertise that this incredible industry has to offer, and it is a privilege to celebrate the talent and brilliance of creative individuals from across the country.
“In reaching the finals, Daniel and Paolo have demonstrated excellence in all areas of hairdressing, and an ability to bring together the magical elements that make a photographic collection stand out from the competition.”
