An afro hairdresser from Camberwell is in the running for an ‘Oscar of the hair world’ after reaching the finals of HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards.
Lathaniel Chambers, a hair stylist at Lathaniel’s Couture Hair & Beauty in Camberwell’s Coldharbour Lane, is shortlisted among five others from across the UK for the Afro Hairdresser of the Year 2019 accolade, after his work impressed more than 100 industry judges.
Upon finding out he was shortlisted, he said: “Afro hair is so versatile and allows for brilliantly sculptural designs. It’s big and bold and I was able to let my imagination run free. I’m delighted to be recognised and to have got this far.”
The awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf, will take place on November 25, 2019, where the final winners will be announced.
