HJ’s British Hairdressing Awards are NOW OPEN for entry and with a renewed focus on accessibility, there’s never been a better time to enter.
Now in its 37th year, the ‘Oscars of the hair world’ has broadened its entry criteria to reflect the needs of those wanting to enter and to make the awards accessible to everyone. For 2021, these positive changes include the use of more wigs and hair pieces and collections of six images for those that reach the finalist stage. The Trend Image award will remain as just one shot and the nominees for British Hairdresser of the Year will still be required to shoot eight images.
We’re always looking at ways to evolve the British Hairdressing Awards and so, at a time when we’ve all had to adapt to a new normal, we felt that the awards should reflect this. The record number and quality of entries in 2020 demonstrated just how important this event is to the hairdressing community, and we are all excited to see the work that is submitted.Jayne Lewis Orr – HJ’s executive director
