Errol Douglas Awarded ‘Patron Of Honour’
Errol Douglas MBE has been awarded one of the most prestigious titles in British hairdressing. Errol who owns a luxurious salon in London’s exclusive Belgravia was named a Patron of Honour at the annual Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Luncheon and Awards, which took place earlier this week at London’s famous Dorchester Hotel.
Only three other people have ever been bestowed this honour being Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbie MBE, and Ann Herman. This puts Errol among some of the most iconic names in hairdressing history!
The award recognises Errol’s continued commitment to the Fellowship, hairdressing’s most respected organisation. Fellowship President Karine Jackson commented on Errol’s unwavering passion and steadfast loyalty, both in the UK and on the international stage. As a former President of the Fellowship himself and the recipient of countless awards, Errol is already one of the most renowned names in hairdressing. This title confirms his position as an influencer, educator and all-round role model for the industry.
A Huge Surprise
‘The admiration and respect I have for the work of the Fellowship is no secret’ says Errol. ‘Receiving this award was a huge surprise and an incredible honour. To be only the fourth recipient is staggering and to hear my name alongside the people I look up to as legends was truly humbling.’
What A Year!
The honour rounds off another incredible year for Mr Douglas. Last month, he was awarded the Hair Salon of the Year trophy at the London Lifestyle Awards and in November he was once again shortlisted for the British Hairdresser of the Year title at the British Hairdressing Awards.
