Award-winning Canberran hairdresser Jenni Tarrant, of Bond Hair Religion, was the recipient of a different hairdressing industry award in honour of Vidal Sassoon on Sunday 29 April.
In front of more than 600 of the Australian hairdressing industry’s elite, Jenni was announced the recipient of the Vidal Sassoon Humanitarian Award at the 2018 Australian Hair Industry Awards Gala Night.
Sponsored by Beauty Gives Back, the Vidal Sassoon Humanitarian Award is an industry nominated award given to a person who has made outstanding philanthropic contributions throughout his or her career.
The award has the honour of using the late great Vidal Sassoon’s name by his daughter Eden Sassoon, an advocate and supporter of the AHIA’s, in honour of her father and his humanitarian work throughout his career.
Highly regarded and renowned in the Australian hairdressing industry and local community for her community involvement and support, Jenni has remained committed to fundraising for, and shining the light on organisations/events such as Canberra LifeLine, BraveHearts, Women of Spirit Awards, Shave for A Cure, Smile Project and Toora Womens Refuge.
Jenni will also be part of a Hair Expo Australia panel called Safe Hands in June 2018, informing hairdressers how to help clients when they confide in them about family violence.
Next up, Jenni’s next challenge will be trekking across Mongolia on horseback to raise money for 4 local Canberra groups to help them provide much needed services to the vulnerable in the community.
