Errol Douglas MBE, one of the world’s most influential hairdressers, was awarded a prestigious “Ambassador For London” award at the London Lifestyle Awards 2015. The award was given by the organisation, as Douglas is considered to be a true inspiration and leader in his field, having opened his first hair salon in London’s Belgravia in 1998 and was awarded an MBE in 2008 for services to the industry.
On his win, Douglas said: “I’m incredibly honoured to be recognised by the city that I love and have lived in my whole life, where my business has thrived and my collaborations both in my own industry and in many other sectors have been unique because of the unique qualities London boasts. In all my business travels I am a proud representative of a city that has helped me develop through the mentors I’ve met along the way, both as an entrepreneur as a hairdresser”
Douglas is known for his spectacular photographic work, his highly respected mentor role within the industry and his established Belgravia salon with high profile clients spanning film, fashion, music and business. He has received his 19th consecutive nomination for British Hairdresser Of The Year 2015, is the former president for the British Fellowship for Hairdressing and is currently the association’s first Global Ambassador.
