This was not as easy a decision as I thought it was going to be. The really close winners were the ghd Air Hairdryer, AVEDA Confixor liquid gel and the Schwarzkopf got2Bglued hairspray which has actually been featured in another category. This year has definitely been a year of discovery when it comes to me and hair styling, forcing myself to break away from old habits, styles and techniques and meeting with some amazing people who’ve taught me everything I need to know from scratch.

OK, I’m being mean, so drumroll please… For Best Hair Styling Award 2012, there could be no other brand, based on price, efficacy, innovation and general fabulousness (yes, this is a quantitative attribute). It’s Bond. Hairbond. Particularly the Moulder.

Hairbond is a brand started by Scott Michaels, an inspiring chap who sold his salon to start a business of the design and manufacturing of incredible hair styling products as well as an awesome Shampoo & Conditioner. The Moulder, a rich, thick clay / cream. It gives the effect of wax but with a fantastic matte effect. Hair is thickened unbelievably, and the hold is unbeatable even with only the tiniest amount. Oh and it smells like Love Heart sweets.

The brand is fast becoming international and Scott an international man of mystery. No person, product or brand is more deserving of this award. Congratulations to Scott and Hairbond.
