Award-winning hairdresser, salon owner, global ambassador for Matrix, media & celebrity favourite Jamie Stevens is returning for a 5th year as The X Factor hairstylist.
Jamie took a hiatus from the show in 2015 to launch his MR. JAMIE STEVENS range of men’s hair products, but was delighted to be asked to return this year.
Jamie is a unique stylist in that he excels in both men’s and women’s hair, winning British Men’s Hairdresser of the Year 3 times, and scooping five nominations for British Hairdresser of the Year. He’s worked with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Elle Macpherson, Eva Herzigova, Myleene Klass, Christian Slater, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant and Olly Murs, not to mention the many artists that he transformed on The X Factor as the official backstage hairstylist for four years, including Little Mix and Union J.
In addition to The X Factor, Jamie’s affable nature and down to earth approach has seen him as hairdresser of choice on shows including This Morning, Gok’s Fashion Fix and How to Look Good Naked, cementing his status as one of the UK’s most sought-after stylists.
Said Jamie, “I’m excited to announce that my amazing team and I are back heading up the hair for this year’s show! It’s fantastic to be back amongst The X Factor madness and there’s some amazing talent this year, I’m really looking forward to creating some A-list transformations… Matrix Professional Haircare & Color and MR. JAMIE STEVENS products will be supporting me and my team during the show so a huge thanks to them.”
Jamie, who opened his first salon aged 18 and was the youngest ever contender for British Hairdresser of the Year, has also been shortlisted several times in categories including London Hairdresser of the Year and Afro Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards; winner of Clothes Show Live Celebrity Hairdresser of the Year 2010, the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Ambassador of the Year 2010 and Media Personality of 2012; English Hair & Beauty Awards Men’s Stylist of the Year 2013 and winner of the first ever Best Men’s Hairdresser category at the HAIR Awards 2013 & 2015.
Jamie’s salon team includes his talented sibling, Tasha Stevens, manager of the London Salon, who was shortlisted in the Schwarzkopf Professional British Colour Technician of the Year category at the British Hairdressing Awards in 2013 & 2015, and won the L’Oreal Colour Trophy Regional and Grand Final Awards in 2014 alongside Jamie’s wife Megan, Senior Stylist at the London Salon; extensions, colour and afro specialist Harry Casey; afro expert Anthony Grant; and award-winning men’s hairdresser Jonathan Andrew.
