Afro Hairdresser of the Year wins two more top awards

WINNER: Michelle Thompson with her two Black Beauty and Hair Sensationnel awards

AFRO HAIRDRESSER of the Year Michelle Thompson has added another two prestigious awards to her mantle piece.

After being named the Afro Hairdresser of the Year for the second time at the British Hairdressing Awards last month, Thompson has gone on to win two more gongs at the Black Beauty and Hair Sensationnel Awards.

The hair-fanatic scooped the Colourist of the Year award and the coveted Stylist of the Year at Sunday's (Nov 29) glamourous ceremony.

Just last month, Thompson, of the Francesco Group Advanced Academy, was crowned Afro Hairdresser of the Year at this year's Hairdressers Journal (HJ) British Hairdressing Awards.

The iconic photographic competition requires hairdressing professionals and artistic teams from across the country to create a collection of eight images that showcase their creativity and technical ability.

Executive director of Hairdressers Journal International, Jayne Lewis-Orr said: “Michelle Thompson should be very proud of her success. British hairdressing is regarded as the best in the world and to win Afro Hairdresser of the Year is a huge achievement.

"Each year the judges find choosing a winner harder, proving that creativity and passion are stronger than ever.”
