Josh Griffiths from Spirit Hair Team in Ystrad Mynach, near Caerphilly, has been crowned as Welsh Student of the Year at the National Hairdressers Federation’s Welsh Hairdressing & Beauty Awards 2015, which took place in Cardiff this weekend.
Josh beat off stiff competition from students across Wales to win the accolade. NHF Wales president and Cardiff salon owner, Mark Coray, said,
Massive congratulations to Josh. The awards recognise the very best professionals in our industry, judged by the people who matter the most – our clients. Competition was really intense this year so everyone, whether winner or runner-up, should be hugely proud of the recognition they’ve achieved. The success of this year’s Welsh Hairdressing & Beauty Awards 2015 has shown, once again, that Welsh hairdressing is in a great, exciting place to be right now. Long may it continue.
