The Competition

The #ONESHOT Hair Awards is the largest hair awards competition in the world, receiving almost 400,000 entries in just three years! It celebrates every aspect of the industry, with 18 Hot Shot categories celebrating real hair behind the chair and six Big Shot categories for studio work. In its first year, we received 47,000 entries. In our second year, we received more than 131,000 entries. This year, we received an astounding 215,000+ entries, proving again that a transparent awards program—one that only requires #ONESHOT posted to Instagram—is what the industry wants!
