Jacob Scully from ScullyScully in Godalming, has scooped the CREATIVE HAIRCUTTER GOLD award at this year’s prestigious Global Creative Awards 2022 UK & Ireland Finals.

Held at the iconic 14th century, Grade I listed Merchant Taylor’s Hall, London, the gold, silver, and bronze winners were unveiled to an audience of salon guests from all over the UK; also cheered on by renowned sustainability visionaries, fashion designers, and KMS collaborators, VIN + OMI.

More than 300 guests attended the live grand final extravaganza to celebrate the incredible talents who made it to the final stage of the UK & Ireland Final, as well as to crown the worthy winners of 2022.

Hosted by Kao Salon Division UK & Ireland General Manager, Julie Winchester and Key Account Educator, Tony Perryman, guests were welcomed with canapes, Champagne, cocktails, and a string quartet. As well as, of course, the best party in town, all before experiencing a stunning runway show, featuring the finalists’ stunning hair creations.

Reaching the finals of the Global Creative Awards is a prestigious accolade, with stylists first challenged to create their vision through a stunning photograph, followed by recreating it in the international live competition.
