Mansfield hairdressers win big at the British Hairdressing Awards 2021

Two hairdressers at a Mansfield salon were recognised at the British Hairdressing Awards 2021 which brings together the UK hairdressing elite to celebrate the best in the industry.

Salon group Mark Leeson, which has branches in Mansfield and Chesterfield, was honoured with a remarkable five trophies at the award ceremony.

Among the award winners were artistic stylist at the Mansfield salon Olivia Binch who won Eastern Hairdresser of the Year and the prize for Newcomer of the Year went to Abbie Johnson, who is an up-and-coming stylist also at the Mansfield salon.

In addition, team members Lisa Graham and Joseph I’Anson, plus Andrea Giles and Terri Kay were inducted to the Hall of Fame, a rare accolade that acknowledges the outstanding achievement of three previous wins at the British Hairdressing Awards and Chesterfield salon manager, Shaun Hall, picked up the hotly contested prize for Midlands Hairdresser of the Year.
