• The International Hairdressing Awards 2023 will take place in Spring.
The International Hairdressing Awards open the participation for the 2023 competition, which once again will be done exclusively online at www.ihawards.com and will last until January 17th. A period of time long enough for all hairdressers from every country in the world to present their photographic collections and participate in any of the contest categories. The International Hairdressing Awards 2023 will take place in Spring, in a city/date to be announced.
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 Salón Look Madrid and The Hair MBA as sponsors.
“In 2022 we showed that we could overcome any adversity and come back even stronger, and in this fifth year of the competition we will show that the international hairdressing industry is in a very good moment. We invite all the hair artists in the world to present their collections and compete with their fabulous creations. There are great talents yet to be discovered!“, says Mikel Luzea, director and founder.
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 images). 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.
The pre-nominated shortlist for International Hairdresser of the Year and for International Artistic Team of the Year will be announced on 27th September. Once the entry period closes, on January 17th 2023, the judges will vote the participating collections and then on February, the finalists will be announced via 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 panel which will be announced soon.
