What went down at the show-stopping event

After the barnstorming British Hairdressing Awards last Monday, it was time to celebrate the movers and shakers making their mark in Afro hairdressing at the annual Black Beauty & Hair / Sensationnel Awards.

On Sunday night the Spell team headed to the Hilton Metropole on Edgware Road, London, to join some of the best Afro hairstylists, salon owners, and hair brands (plus a celeb or two) to crown the most talented scissorhands in the industry. Big Brother contestant Toya A Washington played host for the night, while a crop of big-name figures including Kojo and Jade from Capital Xtra Radio gave out the gongs.
