Oh how exciting! We hear Mark Leeson is the winner of the AIPP Grand Trophy 2017-18 and will be presented with his new title in Italy this week at Cosmoprof. The AIPP Awards are hot! Hosted by the Association Internationale Presse Professionnelle Coiffure – quite a mouthful but meaning the international press corps – the awards invite entries from all over the world and are judged by an expert panel of hairdressing magazine editors including the likes of Tribu-te magazine, and Estetica. It’s really quite a coup to win one of the 5 categories which break down as: avant-large; commercial; photography; men’s; and video. The category winners then compete for Grand Trophy overall and Mark has scooped it this year. Congratulations and well-deserved recognition from the international hairdressing arena.
