The International Hairdressing Awards announce the date of the 2022 awards ceremony, which will take place in Madrid on May 16th. Once again, it will be an event that will intend to surprise and transform the usual format of hairdressing shows.
In March, Mikel Luzea, IHA director and founder, and Sergi Bancells, global ambassador of the awards, will travel around the world together with a recording team to announce personally the awards to the winners, by surprise and with live broadcasting via Internet. The three finalists in each category will have the indication to be in their hairdressing salons in a specific time slot and will know if they are winners or not in real time. The footage that will be recorded during the world tour will be used for the realization of a docu-reality for television platforms.
After this world tour, the seven winners will be invited to attend the great night of hairdressing industry in Madrid, on May 16th, where The International Hairdressing Awards®’ evening will consist again of a purple carpet -the red carpet of global hairdressing-, a catwalk with the most important hairdressing teams of the world, and the awards ceremony, where the seven winners will be crowned.
The International Hairdressing Awards are an independent company, powered by hairdressers, founded and directed by the well-known Spanish hairdresser Mikel Luzea. The International Hairdressing Awards are supported by Revlon Professional as main sponsor, Estetica Magazine as global media partner and Beauty Underground as sponsor.
Every hairdresser from all over the world can take part in the contest by signing up at www.ihawards.com and uploading their photographic collections (4 pictures of 4 different hairdressing styles, professional shooting, hi-res). Two categories, International Haidresser of the Year and International Artistic Team of the Year, need a pre-selection to take part. The remaining categories (Best International Men’s Collection, Best International Women’s Collection and Best International Avant-Garde Collection) are open to every hairdresser. The two honorific categories (International Hair Legend of the Year and International Hair Influencer of the Year) are delivered by the organizing committee and are not open to general participation.
Once the entry period closes, on January 10th 2022, the judges will vote the participating collections and on 13th February, the finalists will be announced in live streaming. The winners in the five categories will be revealed among the fifteen finalists whose candidacies will be chosen by a jury made up of five renowned international hairdressers, a pannel which will be announced soon.
