Superstars of 2020 – Meet the Most Wanted 2020 ‘Individual’ Finalists

On Monday 6 July more than 60 judges gathered in Shoreditch to assess a brilliant and best-ever line-up of Most Wanted entries. AWESOME names in hair, fashion, publishing and business – Sam McKnight, John Vial, Claudia Croft (10 Magazine), Sonia Haria (The Telegraph), Lisa Farrall, Tyler Johnston, Matt Robinson, Louise Gray (Central Saint Martins), Alice Hart-Davis, Neil Moodie, Joely Walker (Grazia), Shannon Peter (Stylist) and dozens more, to name[drop] just a few – had the monumentally tough task of deliberating and determining this year’s finalists.

And so, without further ado, let us announce the finalists in the Individual Awards categories – see a full list below. To see who made it through in the Teams awards categories, click HERE.
