Hairdresser of the Year
Martin was crowned “Hairdresser of the Year” for Wales & South West England in 2014 and 2015.
After having been runner up for the past two years, he was extra happy to win in 2014, and then he won the title again in 2015.
Martin’s stunning photographic collections have graced the covers of top publications all over the world and his collections have taken him to the finals of the ‘Oscars’ of the hairdressing industry, the British Hairdressing Awards, three years running.
Presented by Hairdressers Journal International and sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, the British Hairdressing Awards seek to highlight the very best talent in the British hairdressing industry.
Martin’s collections and creations have been mainly about the contrasts of femininity, with some stunning male models thrown in for good measure.
The women featured in the collections are strong, striking and powerful. The collections have expressed both sides through the contrasts in cut, colour and texture.
The judges were continuously impressed by Martin’s combination of creativity and technical ability and he was awarded a finalist position in the Wales and South West Hairdresser of the Year category in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2014 he won the coveted prize.
‘Each year the quality of the entries in each and every category is phenomenal and the creativity is inspirational,’ comments Publishing Director of Hairdressers Journal International, Jayne Lewis-Orr. ‘British hairdressing is recognised throughout the world as being the best, and the British Hairdressing Awards recognise and reward creativity and excellence in all hairdressing skills.’
