James Roberts Hair Picks Up Prestigious Accolade

A Glasgow salon has been awarded ‘Best Salon Design’ at the Scottish Hair and Beauty awards. Beating stiff competition from throughout the country, James Roberts Hair Design wowed the judges with its mix of attention to detail, spectacular finish and luxury look.

Hosted by Denise Van Outen and held the Marriott Hotel on Sunday evening, these were the 5th annual Scottish Hair and Beauty awards, which were attended by more than 200 people. Celebrating the talent, passion and innovation of dedicated, hard-working hair and beauty professionals, the awards highlight the very best Hair Stylists, Beauty Therapists and Makeup Artists that the country has to offer.

Based in Berkeley Street in Finnieston, James Roberts has been located in the west end of the city since 2013 and has built a fierce reputation for its precision cutting, top-class colour and glamorous style.

Owner, James Roberts, moved to Brighton at the age of 17, where he entered hairdressing and honed his skills. After ten years, James emigrated to Sydney, Australia, where he led one of the city’s most upmarket and prestigious salons, winning a clutch of awards and styling amongst others, a host of television personalities.

Just over two years ago, James returned home with the ambition of bringing his international experience to life in Glasgow. Within six months he had been crowned "Best Male Stylist" in the 2013 Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards. Now he has a team of five and a loyal customer base of all ages from throughout the city.

James Roberts of James Roberts Hair Design said:

"I’m really thrilled to have won this award – it’s a tremendous validation of the hard work we’ve put in to create a salon that’s special. We’ve created a high-end but also very welcoming environment; a place where our customers know immediately they’re in the right hands. "

"Whether our clients are looking for something classic or cutting edge, we pride ourselves on being able to not just meet but exceed their expectations. From our look and feel, to our service, atmosphere and the finished product, every area of James Roberts Hair Design benefits from attention to detail. Huge thanks to the judges for recognising our efforts."


Sassoon Hosts Educational Seminar for HABB

The Sassoon Creative team are long-time supporters of the industry charity, Hair & Beauty Benevolent (HABB), and the team recently hosted their annual educational seminar to help raise funds and awareness within the hairdressing community.

An intimate affair, guests were welcomed into the Wella London academy to an up close and personal evening with Sassoon UK Creative Director Bruce Masefield and Colour Director Caroline Spencer as they compared the Sassoon Creative Team.

With three intricate sections focusing on technical colouring and precision cuttings, the presenters shared their inspirations from Sassoon Academy and Sassoon Salon collections past and present. The final section demonstrated presentation models from the Sassoon Academy’s recent collection “The Group” – the SS15 collection that takes its inspiration from American classics and how Ivy League socialites meet misfits of Beat.

On the night, Sassoon Creative Team presenters included technicians Abigail Coates from Sassoon South Molton Street salon and Isla Dommet from Sassoon Covent Garden salon, Sandor Veress-Gyori from Sassoon Covent Garden, and hairdressers Oon Ng from Sassoon Academy, Michael Pliz from Sassoon City Men, Kim Lomax from Sassoon South Molton Street salon, Lucy Ward from Sassoon Kings Road salon and Marco Amoroso from Sassoon Covent Garden salon. Each member shared with the audience their inspirations and career directions before presenting their finished models to an enthralled audience.
We always enjoy these evenings; being able to share our expertise as a group whilst also giving back to a great cause like HABB is really important. We’d love for more salons to do the same – host an evening for HABB and share your skills and expertise with others,” explains Bruce.
