We've been so busy at Burlesque that it's only now we've had time to share our 2009 British Hairdressers Awards finalists collection with you. Just to recap, last year you may remember that we were finalists in The British Hair Awards, thanks to this collection (below).

The collection is called "Cirque Electro" and was inspired by Burlesque's early roots, bringing together an 80's flamboyancy with a current urban feel that had to marry high fashion and  commercial.

The collection helped us to achieve regional finalist position at the Brithish Hairdressers Awards 2009 - something that all salons aspire to. We had a great trip to the finals ceremony in London, with none other that Dermot O'Leary hosting the event! 

Images from the collection have featured in all the top hair consumer magazines, including Hair, Hair Now, Hair ideas, Perfect Hair and most importantly The Hairdressers Journal, the industry Bible!!! Apart from the kudos the these awards bring, we were especially proud because the entire team at Burlesque were involved in the creation of the collection, and everyone had a part to play from creating mood boards, attending art team meetings, and fully contributing to the concept right through to delivery of the completed collection.
