Joshua was presented with his trophy in front of an A-List crowd of hair, fashion and media VIPs earlier this month at the It List Grand Final, which was hosted by comedian Rob Beckett at London’s historic Guildhall.

Session stylist Johnnie Sapong and celebrity hairdresser James Brown were among the 600-strong audience, alongside leading talent agencies and more than a few celebrities.

Joshua’s prize includes an It List trophy, a place on an exclusive trends workshop, courtesy of ghd, plus print and online editorial coverage in Creative Head magazine.

Catherine Handcock, Publisher of Creative Head said: “Young, gifted and full of bright ideas, Joshua should be extremely proud of his well-deserved trophy. The It List celebrates the new wave of talent that keeps this brilliant industry moving forward, and we can’t help but feel we’ll be hearing lots more from our winners in the future.”

oshua said: “I’ve been in the hairdressing industry for ten years and I’ve entered so many times so to hear my name announced as the winner was surreal but amazing.”

Joshua will be at the launch of Goldsworthy’s The Hair Shop on Thursday which will be officially opened by Britain's Next Top Model 2016 winner Chloe Keenan and models Angel Cole and Billie Tiffany Faye Downes.

Joshua is a member of the Britain’s Next Top Model styling team. Working on the show, he has travelled with the models to shoots in the UK and overseas, including exotic locations in Jamaica.

Previous It List winners have gone on to secure lucrative contracts as ambassadors for global brands, been snapped up by leading talent agencies, joined backstage teams at Fashion Weeks around the world, and presented at Creative Head events.

Goldsworthy’s is a five-time winner of the prestigious Wales and South West Hairdresser of the Year award. The hairdressing group has salons in Swindon, Cirencester and Marlborough. 

The Hair Shop event will take place from 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm.
