Rush Hair celebrates success at the Phoenix Theatre.
The annual Rush Oscars were recently held at the glamorous Phoenix Theatre in London, where the team celebrated another outstanding year of new salon openings, a new academy and the Rush Art Team entering hairdressing 'Hall of Fame'.
Over 1000 attendees were welcomed with a motivational speech by CEO and Co-founder Stell Andrews before International Creative Director Andy Heasman and International Colour Director Chris Williams took to the stage to host the event and thank the Rush family for 'making us as amazing as we are.'
Each year the salon brand raises valuable funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital and this year was no exception as Rush's Tina Farey and Paola Pinto presented GOSH with a cheque for £14,245.83, bringing the total raised over eight years up to £135,000.
The awards were a keenly anticipated part of the evening, with the announcment of Ashley Haynes as the newest member of the RUSH Artistic Team and Tom Atkinson winning the Photographic Competition. New Academy Director Adam Bryant also spoke on stage about how he was "overwhelmed with the support" in his new role and "proud to be part of such a great team."
Drawing the evening to a close Co-founder and CEO Andy Phouli presented the final award for London Salon of the Year to Rush Kensington.
