Global Creative Awards 2023
The Global Creative Awards 2023 UK & Ireland Finalists

On a beautiful sunny day earlier this month, the Menier Lounge in Southwark, London was the host location for an audience of salon guests and industry VIPs from the UK. They came together for a lunch and afternoon garden party to discover the gold, silver, and bronze winners from the UK & Ireland of Kao Salon Division UK’s Global Creative Awards 2023.

This was also opportunity for guests to meet all the finalists, as well as to review their stunning hair looks from across the 3 main categories, New Talent Colorist of the Year, Creative Colorist of the Year and Haircutter of the Year.

“The Global Creative Awards are the highlight of the hairdressing calendar and we’re delighted to welcome our salon customers, all who are part of our Kao Salon Division family, to celebrate such incredible talent, creativity and passion,” commented Julie Winchester, General Manager, Kao Salon Division, UK & Ireland. “The atmosphere has been incredible. Each of our finalists should be so proud of everything they have achieved during this competition. We congratulate and thank each of them for their dedication and for continuing to inspire us as a business and brand as well as our industry. It’s been an incredible event with some incredible talent. Congratulations to our finalists and our winners.
