Hair we go as salon star receives top award
An Uddingston hairdresser was recognised at the British Hairdressing Awards last week.
Suzie Mcgill from the Rainbow Room was introduced into the prestigious Hall of Fame.
Each November, the British Hairdressing Awards, presented by Hairdressers Journal and sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, recognises the very best of the hairdressing industry in one of the top nights in the calendar.
The awards celebrate talent across 16 categories in total, recognising achievement in both regional and specialist fields. For those that are lucky enough to win the same category on three separate occasions, a prestigious honour is bestowed; a place in the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame.
Once in the Hall of Fame, a hairdresser is no longer allowed to enter that category, having reached the very pinnacle of talent in that field.
This year, Suzie Mcgill from Rainbow Room International was awarded the prize, having received the title of Scottish Hairdresser of the Year three times. She now joins a prestigious lineup of hairdressers in the hallowed Hall – and joins a select group of Scottish talent who have been awarded the title previously.
As well as her impressive trio of wins, Suzie has also been shortlisted for the award on ten occasions, making her one of the most in-demand Scottish stylists in the industry.
The Scottish hairdressers in the Hall of Fame now reads like a veritable who’s who of the hairdressing industry in Scotland. Suzie joins Philip Bell, Tracey Devine, Jason and India Miller, Charlie Taylor and Kay Mcintyre to form a formidable line-up of talent.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, Suzie is now the international artistic director of the Rainbow Room International salon group and owner of the Uddingston salon. She is also a UK ambassador for Schwarzkopf Professional.
Suzie Mcgill commented:“to now been in the British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame is incredible, I can’t believe it. To be in the Hall of fame with some of the top names in the industry is just surreal, and such an honour.”
