CONGRATULATIONS!

BEST APPRENTICE, SPONSORED BY WAHL

“Being chosen as a finalist was crazy so to actually win feels like an incredible achievement. Had my dad not given me my first Wahl clipper I wouldn’t be where I am today. I also want to say a massive thank you to my boss Hannah McKnight for pushing me out of my comfort zone and honing my craft.”  – Deone Luke, from Nu:Era Barbers

BEST SHOP INTERIOR, SPONSORED BY TAKARA BELMONT

“Getting this award means everything to us. We spent so much time designing this shop and we put everything into it. From the arcade machines to the pictures we use, from the beer we offer to the music we play – the recognition means so much!”  – Bond’s Broadstone

BEST PHOTOGRAPHIC ENTRY

“Wow! We are thrilled to have won this award. In strange times like these, it’s amazing to have such great news. We’re over the moon – we love our collection and we’re so happy!” – Jim Shaw and Daisy Carter, TONI&GUY Billericay

BEST TEAM, SPONSORED BY WAHL

“Thank you so much, it’s an honour to win this award. We’re a solid group and we’re like one big family that supports each other in and out of the shop, especially through 2020’s tough times.”  – Bond’s Barbershop

BEST BUSINESS LEADER 

“This has been a challenging year for barbering and it means so much for me and my team to get this award. I want to thank everyone around me, especially those behind the scenes who are supporting the brand and who got us to where we are. Here’s to 2021!” – Joe Mills, Joe and Co

BEST TRAINING, SPONSORED BY MVRCK BY MITCH

“YES! Thank you so much, we’re so proud to have won this award. We put everything into our training and with COVID-19 the training academy and our barbershops have been hit really hard. We’ve had to create a waiting list for the education side so we can still deliver the best possible training and ensure graduates go straight into jobs.”  – Mike Taylor, Mike Taylor Education

BEST ALL ROUND BARBER, SPONSORED BY MVRCK BY MITCH

“I’d like to dedicate this award to my lovely, diverse and multi-cultural clients and my team who support me every day. I entered images that I’d taken of my clients on the streets of Southampton to reflect the pride in our cultures and where we come from. I believe that the variation in hair types throughout my client base has helped me to hone my skills as an all-round barber.” – Natalie Cresswell, Creswell Barber Co.

BEST CLIENT EXPERIENCE, SPONSORED BY TAKARA BELMONT 

“We pride ourselves on the service we deliver every single day so it’s a privilege to be honoured for that.” – Deneka Greensmith, Substance Barbershop
