Who won at the Rush Oscars 2016?


Paola Pinto, Tina Farey & girls from GOSHThe annual Rush Oscars took place on the 22nd of January at the Savoy Theatre, London. The awards are thoroughly looked forward to by each and every staff member. After the awards finished, there was a huge after party at Tiger Tiger! Thank you again to the Savoy Theatre and Tiger Tiger for being so accommodating.

Andy Heasman, International Creative Director, and Chris Williams, International Colour Director warmed the crowd up by reminiscing on the amazing year that they had had. The pair were extremely excited about the year to come but had to wait for Chairman and Co-Founder, Andy Phouli to announce the news.

Andy Phouli took to the stage and congratulated everyone on the amazing year. He talked about the achievements of 2016 including opening 11 new salons and revamping 4 existing ones. Andy then announced the big news- Rush have secured a £16million investment from LDC. The investment will help Rush expand as a brand and double its salon count over the next four years.

Next on stage was Co-Founder, Stell Andrew. After congratulating the Rush family on a record breaking year he introduced Yann Souillar, Managing Director of LDC to the group. Yann introduced himself and explained how excited LDC were about their new investment.

Tina Farey, Editorial Director, and Paola Pinto, Education Director presented GOSH a cheque for £14,880. The money was raised at our annual Rush Live show, back in October. GOSH are our charity partner and we love to raise money for them and will continue to do so.
