Mark Leeson has been named International Artistic Team of the Year 2023 at the International Hairdressing Awards (IHA) in a top-secret, live streamed prize-giving. In addition, Bayleigh Peace & Laura Scott from the salon scooped the prize for Best International Men’s Commercial Collection.

Mikel Luzea, Director and Founder, and Sergi Bancells, Global Ambassador of the global awards, sponsored by Revlon Professional®, travelled to Mansfield to surprise the award-winning salon this March and the art team travelled to Palma in May to celebrate their wins and take part in a glittering ceremony (*more on the to come).

Seen as one of the most prestigious prizes in worldwide hairdressing, the shortlist was chosen by an international jury panel. The finalists across all the categories come from countries around the world and represent the very best in global hairdressing. This was the fifth consecutive nomination for the Mark Leeson team.

Commenting on the surprise award, Co-owner and Creative Director of Mark Leeson, Richard Darby said; “Our art team is the jewel in the crown at Mark Leeson. To see the team recognised on a global stage is such an honour. For two members of our team to go on and win in the Men’s category too is just unprecedented. What talent we have under one roof!”

Mark himself added, “What an incredible result! I’m so proud of the hard work and dedication our whole team shows on a daily basis. We think we’ve got the best team in the world at Mark Leeson. This award proves it!”

The 2023 awards ceremony of the International Hairdressing Awards took place in a spectacular celebration on May 8th in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The glamorous global hairdressing night brought together the biggest names in the profession to present the coveted awards in an unforgettable evening.
