NHBF Unveils Top 100 Influencer Index, Recognising Influencers Shaping the Hair & Beauty Industry

The National Hair and Beauty Federation (NHBF) proudly announces this year’s highly anticipated Top 100 Influencer Index, celebrating the dynamic individuals who have profoundly impacted and shaped the hair and beauty sector landscape.

 In an era where innovation, creativity, and digital prowess redefine the standards of a hair and beauty professional, for the third year running, the NHBF has meticulously curated a prestigious list acknowledging the visionaries, trendsetters, and trailblazers who are propelling the sector forward. Held at St John’s Church in Hyde Park, The NHBF Top 100 Influencer Index celebrated the diverse voices, skills, knowledge and exceptional contributions of professionals across the diverse breadth of our unique, innovative and progressive sector, including but not limited to hairstyling, skincare, makeup artistry, salon management, and entrepreneurial leadership. 

Hairdressing influencer and hairstylist Chloe Swift took home the coveted number one spot after placing 13thin 2022 and 9th at the inaugural awards in 2021. A delighted Chloe commented, “I’m so pleased and genuinely surprised to have landed the top spot at the NHBF Top 100 Influencer Index! As it’s ranked with social stats and analytics, you never know which way it will go when the rankings are announced – I was just hoping for a place in the top 5 to be honest! I’ve been lucky enough to be in the top 20 for the last 2 years – #9 in 2021 and #13 in 2022. This year I really focused on posting 6 days a week consistently across 3 platforms, sharing hair styling tutorials and tips for both professionals and consumers. Thank you NHBF for the #1 spot, I can’t wait for the year ahead!”  

Caroline Larissey, the newly elected Chief Executive of the NHBF added, “The NHBF Top 100 Influencer Index represents a celebration of innovation, talent, and dedication within the hair and beauty sector.
