Nominated for International Hairdressing Awards for fifth time

Posted onPosted on 25th Oct

Mansfield hairdresser Mark Leeson has scooped nominations for International Artistic Team of the Year and International Hairdresser of the Year 2023  – two categories of the International Hairdressing Awards (IHA), which need a pre-selection to take part.

Seen as the most prestigious prize in worldwide hairdressing, the shortlist is chosen by an international jury panel.

The finalists across all the categories come from countries around the world.

This is the fifth consecutive nomination for the Mark Leeson team, which picked up the ultimate recognition in the category of Best International Men’s Commercial Collection in 2021.

Now the hairdressers who have been pre-selected in the two categories are invited to submit their entries and the remaining categories (Best International Men’s Collection, Best International Women’s Collection and Best International Avant-Garde Collection) will be open to every hairdresser from all over the world, by uploading a photographic collection.

Mark said: “Any kind of recognition from the hairdressing community is an honour, but to see our name up there alongside the greatest names from all around the world takes it to another level. We always enjoy putting the UK on the map, but also knowing that we’re bringing world-class hairdressing home to our Mansfield and Chesterfield salons.”

Mark Leeson, who has been in the industry for more than 35 years, scooped the top honour of British Hairdresser of the Year Award in 2014.  He has also been nominated for 2022 Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards on 28th November.
