Lauryn and Fran have secured their status as one of the UK’s most outstanding hairdressers after being confirmed as a finalist in HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards 2019, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional.

They impressed more than 100 hair industry judges to be named one of just six stylists shortlisted for the Eastern Hairdresser of the Year category – which welcomed entries from aspiring hairdressers from 11 counties spanning the east of England (Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland and Suffolk).

Lauryn and Fran's creative hairstyling and exceptional skill in cutting and colouring ensured their photographic work stood out from the rest. Now, Lauryn and Francesca will submit another four images of their work in the hope of catching the judges’ imagination and hearts further with their expanded trend-led collection. This artistic hairdressing will put them in the running to be named Eastern Hairdresser of the Year at the big ceremony – the Oscars of the hair world – HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards in November 2019.

Delighted with their achievement, Lauryn and Francesca said: “The calibre of hairdressing recognised in these awards is widely known, and we are very proud to have done so well. There are many amazing hairdressers in our region, and we are thrilled to be nominated.”

Commenting on the announcement, Jayne Lewis-Orr, executive director of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards said; “To be named as a finalist in the Eastern Hairdresser of Year category highlights just how exceptional Lauryn and Francesca are. Their hairstyling demonstrated fantastic skill and vision, and rightly gives them the acknowledgement as one of the UK’s best hairdressers.”

“Britain has long had a world-class reputation for trend-setting in the hairdressing industry, and Lauryn and Francesca prove that this renowned creativity and excellence is still at the heart of the British hair scene.”
