Scratch Stars 2012

Over 50 finalists put files to fingertips and went head to head at The London College of Beauty Therapy on 27-28 February in a bid to win one of 18 prestigious Scratch Star awards.

Launched by Scratch magazine, UK and Europe’s leading industry voice for nail professionals, the Scratch Stars awards aim to recognise UK nail industry excellence in both technical skill and business ethic.

Leading industry figures were specially selected to judge the finalists over two days; on the first day, individuals took to their REM nail stations to compete in categories including Gel Tech of the Year and Nail Artist of the Year while the second day saw editorial experts and awarding bodies amass to judge categories including Salon of the Year, Session Stylist of the Year and Best Customer Care provider.

The judges for the practical categories gather at LCBT- L-R: Sam Watkinson (Artistic Colour Gloss UK), Gillian Cawthray (The Beauty Partnership), Georgie Smedley (Nail Harmony UK), Katerina Mylona (Chroma Gel), Rebecca Orme (EzFlow), Liz Sanderson (ASP), Trudie Ratcliff (Gellux), Samantha Bowers (Jessica), Andria Vassiliou (Cetuem), Charlotte Furze (LCBT), Hannah Rowland and Ketan Patel (Sweet Squared) and Tara Oldham (Lena White).

Over 1,200 techs and companies from all corners of the UK submitted entries for the Scratch Stars awards from October 2011 – January 2012. This number was then narrowed down based on photo entries, portfolios and testimonials. With 18 awards up for grabs, competition is fierce and after a stint of mystery phone calls and visits, the finalists will be revealed at the awards party on Sunday 20th May 2012 at the stunning Café de Paris near London’s Leicester Square.
