It’s official, the winners of The Big One 2021 have been announced! We’re so admiring of this new posse of titleholders!
On Monday 15th November we hosted our brand new show Hair Pieces at Battersea Arts Centre. A stunning venue full of character and perfect for the vibe of this new event. The concept of Hair Pieces rests on the audience being guided through the building, visiting spaces where brilliant artistic hairdressers are stationed. We had seven stations to hold your gaze, allowing a stay of 15 minutes at each. Our audience of 300, saw pieces of hair being created before the ultimate final look was revealed at the final show. NB Pieces = room in French… like it.
Once the tour was finished, it was time for the Awards ceremony hosted by Nicky Pope, publisher for Tribu-te magazine UK. The exceptional compilation of work submitted by each finalist was on display, followed by one of The Big One sponsors opening the envelope to reveal the winner. Thanks to L’Oréal Professional Products, Avlon Europe, Schwarkozpf Professional, Takara Belmont and Diva Pro Styling for your support.
Without further ado, we present to you our 2021 winners:
The Up & Coming one – Rebecca Jacques @ Daniel Granger Hair
