Hair we go as sa­lon star re­ceives top award

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

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.”
