BTC’s #ONESHOT Categories Announced!

The concept is this: #OneShot is a hair competition with two segments. #HotShot offers 14 categories and celebrates the real hair being done behind the chair. #BigShot has six categories and celebrates the editorial work being done in studios. Last year we had more than 47,000 entries, so the competition is fierce—but the payoff is huge!

BTC’s #OneShot Categories Announced!



You’ve seen it. That one shot you came across on Instagram and just cannot. Stop. Staring at. We live in a new era—no longer do you need to shoot a hair collection to be celebrated for your work. Today, social media allows hairdressers to share their work across the globe and be celebrated—#ONESHOT at a time.


The concept is this: #OneShot is a hair competition with two segments. #HotShot, which offers 14 categories and celebrates the real hair being done behind the chair, and #BigShot, which has six categories and celebrates the editorial work being done in studios. Last year we had more than 47,000 entries, so the competition is fierce—but the payoff is huge!




 
#HotShot
Who needs a studio, Photoshop and filters? You’re killing it behind the chair every day!
 
The world has changed. No longer do you need to buy an album to get that one hit song. And no longer do you need to shoot a hair collection to be celebrated for your work. Social media has proven that celebrations happen ONE SHOT at a time. You know the shot—that ONE SHOT you can’t take your eyes off. The one you keep going back to again and again.
 
Think you’ve got the best shot? Submit your work starting March 13 for a chance to be published in our magazine, Behindthechair.com On Paper and to be featured on behindthechair.com throughout the year. Winners will also receive a COLOR, Cut & Style swag bag featuring products from our sponsors. 
 
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!
 
Nine finalists in each category will be selected. Four shots will be chosen by BTC and judged purely on the quality of the 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. Get all the complete information on #ONESHOT here! Deadline to submit your photos is June 13.
 
Winners will be announced at BTC’s COLOR, Cut & Style Show 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
