What an incredible start to 2020 for Director and Owner of TONI&GUY Billericay. Jim Shaw, who along with salon Premium Stylist, Daisy Carter, have been announced as the winners of the Best International Men’s Commercial Collection category at this year’s International Hairdressing Awards, an independent company powered by hairdressers held in Madrid. This award recognises Jim and Daisy as the best men’s hairdressers in the world.
Around one thousand professionals from 30 different countries in the world attended the prestigious awards to celebrate international hairdressing. The night featured a purple carpet and a runway show with some of the top hairdressing talent in the world presenting their collections prior to a glamorous awards ceremony where Jim Shaw and Daisy Carter were one of the winners in five categories revealed on the night.
The awards require professionals to submit a photographic collection and a dossier summarising their professional career in the last year. Jim and Daisy were delighted to have been presented with the Men’s Commercial Collection category at the awards; however, this is not something unknown to Jim, as he also scooped the category last year at the awards. Jim and Daisy also previously won the British Hairdressing Awards Men’s Hairdresser of the Year category in November 2019, and to win for the second year running at the International Hairdressing Awards solidifies their reputation as one of the best men’s hairdressers not only in the UK, but also in the world.
Jim Shaw, Owner and Director of TONI&GUY Billericay, commented,
To be recognised for the second year in a row at the International Hairdressing Awards for my photographic work is unbelievable. So much time, effort and skill go into the images and the careful consideration of the models and inspiration of the shoot, which myself and Daisy worked incredibly hard with our photographer, Tony Le Britton on. Men’s hairdressing is continuing to grow, and to be an ambassador for men’s hair and educate other’s on men’s hairdressing and creating the best men’s imagery is of great importance to me.
