We Are Scottish Hairdresser of the Year Finalists

Scottish Hairdresser of the Year FINALIST KAM Hairdressers in Lossiemouth

We are delighted to announce that our very own Karen Thomson has been shortlisted for the prestigious Scottish Hairdresser of the Year title at HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards.

The awards are a celebration of hairdressing excellence, recognising the outstanding creative and technical abilities of stylists from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Judged anonymously by over 100 leading hairdressers (including celebrity stylists, session stylists, and salon owners), the winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on Monday 29th November at Grosvenor House in London.

Karen was selected as one of just six finalists in her region, after submitting four photographic images demonstrating her hairdressing expertise, both in terms of technical skill and creative ability. She is now required to submit a further two images for the final round of judging.

“I’m delighted to be a finalist,” says Karen, who previously won the Scottish Hairdresser of the Year title in 2018. “It’s such an honour to be shortlisted alongside such incredible talent. I’m confident that my photographic collection showcases my skillset and imagination and I really hope to bring the trophy home to Lossiemouth.”

Jayne Lewis-Orr, Executive Director of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards, said: “These awards recognise the very best of British hairdressing talent, celebrating the passion, artistry and expertise of individuals from across the country.

“In reaching the finals, Karen has demonstrated that she is an accomplished and gifted stylist with an impeccable eye for detail. Every year, this competition gets tougher as the standard of entries improves and Karen should feel incredibly proud to be recognised at this level.”
