BTC’s New Hair Awards Competition

close formula

 The world has changed. No longer do you need to buy an entire album to get that one hit song. No longer do you need to develop that whole roll of film to get your favorite photo. And, with the arrival of social media, no longer do you need to shoot an entire collection to be celebrated for your work. Celebrations happen ONE SHOT at a time.

 

We’re very proud to announce that behindthechair.com has created an entirely new hair awards competition! Called #ONE SHOT, it celebrates the real world of hair today. Our program is a hair competition with two different segments of categories. The Hot Shot competition offers 17 categories and celebrates the real hair being done behind the chair every day. The Big Shot competition includes six categories and celebrates the hair work being done in studios. 

 

To enter, upload your best photos to Instagram, and tag the photos with the category hashtags below. You may enter as many photos as you’d like for any or all of the categories. There’s no entry fee, and no other rules!  

 

Nine finalists in each category will be selected. Four shots will be chosen by BTC and judged purely on the quality of work (for those of you who don’t have a bazillion followers on Instagram). Five shots will be chosen solely by the most number of likes. To get all the complete information on #ONESHOT click here to review all the details. Deadline to submit your photos is Wednesday, June 3rd.

 


Awards will be judged by more than 100 hairdressing icons from across the world and winners will be announced at BTC’s COLOR, Cut & Style Show 2015.
