Voice of TV’s Love Island, Iain Stirling, revealed winners at HM Awards.

Salon group Headmasters revealed its big winners of 2023 at London Evolution in Battersea Park, with a carnival-themed event attended by more than 800 Headmasters team members. 

Staff from 54 salons, two academies and its head office gathered to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Headmasters throughout 2023, with award winners revealed by Iain Stirling, host comedian and the voice of TV’s Love Island. 

The event was kicked off with a hair show by the Headmasters Artistic Team, led by creative ambassadors Clare Hansford and Sian Couldridge.  It showcased four themes to illustrate how society’s definition of beauty has changed over time, from the Elizabethan era to modern day and beyond to how beauty may evolve in the future. 

The awards followed, celebrating both creativity and business successes as well as service milestones and those who made record takings to be named on the Headmasters A-List and Honours List. The climax was a live raffle, where every colour appointment in 2023 earned stylists a ticket and a chance to win £10,000 to spend at Selfridges.
