The hairdressing stars of the future were rewarded for their cutting and colouring skills at the Haringtons Hairdressing Group annual training awards in High Wycombe.

Trainees from the hairdressing group’s 12 salons created a range of stunning hair cuts, styles and colours on models who were judged by top industry professionals before taking to the catwalk to rapturous applause.

British Hairdresser of the Year nominee Erroll Douglas MBE, L’Oreal National Accounts Creative and Artistic Accounts Manager Bev Rowe, and Haringtons’ Directors Elaine Smith, Robert Smith and David Lambert were impressed by the high level of talent displayed by the young apprentices.

Erroll Douglas said: “If this is the future of hairdressing, it is incredible – the standard is off the chart.”

The audience was treated to a dramatic catwalk of models showcasing Quaintrelle – the Haringtons’ Artistic Team’s new collection of hair cuts, styles and colours – before announcing the evening’s award winners.

One of the biggest winners was Lucia Rackley, a third year apprentice based at Haringtons in Windsor.  Lucia was named overall winner of the Bonifacci Award for her short graduated bob in a delicious honey blonde shade.  She won a £100 voucher plus a training day with leading stylist Erroll Douglas.  Lucia was also named the Year 3 Bonifacci winner and the Year 3 winner of the Hairdressers Journal Front Cover Photoshoot Award.

Third year apprentice Meaghan Latter from Haringtons in Henley was also celebrating after being named the Year 3 winner of the L’Oreal Colour Award for creating a stunning two-tone black and red ombre hair colour on her model.  She then went on to be named the overall winner.

First year trainee Tia Mullings (Marlow) also had a great night after beating the rest of the Year 1 apprentices to win the Bonifacci Award with her model’s sleek and shiny black bobbed hair. Tia also won the Year 1 Hairdressers Journal Front Cover Photoshoot Award before being announced as the overall Hairdressers Journal trophy winner.

The trainees spend three years on the Haringtons apprenticeship training scheme, learning what it takes to become a top hairdresser.  One of the most coveted awards given is for Trainee of the Year which went to Jasmine Buckle (Beaconsfield), who won £300 worth of vouchers.

The event also raised over £500 for the Hair & Beauty Benevolent Charity which supports hairdressers and their families in times of need.
