Marc Antoni Named Best Artistic Team of the Year at British Awards

Henley hairdresser, Marc Antoni has been confirmed as one of the best hairdressers in the country after the salon was named as Artistic Team of the Year at HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2018, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional.

Marc Antoni claimed the title in front of 1,750 hairdressing greats alongside host and TV celebrity, Rylan Clark-Neale. The event, which saw guests celebrating into the early hours, and entertained by Scouting for Girls, was held at the Grosvenor House, a J W Marriott Hotel in London.

The team were required to submit eight images of original hair work which was judged and awarded points for overall technical skill, creative vision and wearable, beautiful looks that pushed the boundaries of hair art. The judging took place over two sessions and included a panel of industry peers, members of the British beauty press and legends and past winners of the British Hairdressing Awards.

Commenting on the win, Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of the British Hairdressing Awards said; “For the past 34 years the British Hairdressing Awards have celebrated the very best talent, creativity and insight within our industry – and this year is no exception. I’d like to extend my warmest congratulations to team at Marc Antoni for demonstrating fantastic technical dexterity as evidenced in the collection they submitted, and also for being such great ambassadors for British hairdressing”.

“This team demonstrates a synergy which will take them far. Their collective vision which was executed to create the eight outstanding images for their collection was just tremendous. It is not often that you find such a clear, decisive and directed collection from an Art Team but I am delighted to say this was a first class demonstration. Congratulations to all involved.”
