HNC Hairdressing graduate, Cameron Knox scooped not one but two top recognitions at The Salon Awards 2022 last week. The prestigious awards which highlight the talents and expertise of hair stylists and salons across the UK were presented in a glittering ceremony in London attended by over 700 hair professionals.


Cameron was delighted to win in two extremely competitive categories, Colourist of the Year and Freelance Hairdresser of the Year.

Speaking after the event, Cameron said “I felt completely shocked to have won. I really did not expect it and I am over the moon. I get to work in an incredible industry and being recognised for my hard work is the best feeling ever!

Education is key; I have had the best education at West College Scotland. I cannot thank the lecturers I had enough for introducing me to the world of hair and the many opportunities it has to offer.”

Curriculum Enhancement Lecturer, Janise Maxwell said, “We are so proud of Cameron and all of his achievements." She continued,

"It is fantastic to see how far he has come and a great example to our students of what can be achieved through hard work and determination.”
