Celebrating hairdressing’s brightest stars

Creative HEAD’s Most Wanted Awards salute the most outstanding, progressive, and game-changing talents in British and Irish hairdressing. Sponsored by brilliant hairdressing and business brands, and open to the owners and employees of salons, workspaces and barber shops, as well as self-employed and freelance hair professionals, there are so many opportunities to get involved with this epic competition.

Entries are judged by dozens of experts – including journalists from leading publications, talent scouts from top international agencies, fashion designers, directors of photography and film, entrepreneurs and, of course, the names behind the most accomplished salon businesses. At stake: highly prized Most Wanted trophies, gifts galore from the competition’s generous sponsors, and a platform like no other to boost your profile. 

It’s free to enter Most Wanted and there are 16 titles rewarding hairdressing excellence at every level – from setting the bar with exceptional education and making every effort in your business to save the planet, to shining behind the scenes at shoots and shows and creating a stunning new workspace. What’s more, win a Most Wanted category three times, and you become a Most Wanted Legend

Winners are crowned at a spectacular Grand Final event in London – a night to blow all other hair parties out of the water. Care to join us in 2024?
