Australia claims International Collection of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards 2019

Jacky Chan, OSCAR OSCAR Chadstone, VIC was named the first ever winner of the International Collection of the Year category on Monday night, 25th November, in London, at HJ’s renowned British Hairdressing Awards 2019, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional. The stylist from Oscar Oscar Chadstone salon in Melbourne beat five other category finalists from around the world to triumph in the UK awards, dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the hair world. Jacky claimed the inaugural title of best internationally produced collection, beating competition from countries as far apart as the USA, the United Arab Emirates and Canada. His phenomenal original hair work demonstrated not only technical skill, but also creative vision and comprehension of current trends. Going through vigorous judging before being rewarded for his skill, Jacky was required to submit a collection of eight images and this photographic work was judged twice by a panel of hairdressing legends, leading national beauty press, and Hall of Fame members (those who have won the same British Hairdressing Awards category on three occasions).

Dyson launch the NEW Airwrap

BY LINDA WOODHEAD Controversial? Yes! Innovative? Yes! Targeted at consumers? Yes! ...But will it have a place in the Professional Hair Industry? I am of course conscious of the reaction this new tool and this blog will most likely glean from 'some' of the Professional hair industry, stylists and salon owners however I will say that as a member of the media and of the hair industry at large, when something like this is invented, it would be naive to not recognise the incredible engineering acumen of this new innovative tool.
