Reach for the stars

If you want 2020 to be YOUR year, you need to enter Creative HEAD’s Most Wanted. Since 2001 this incredible awards event has catapulted the hairdressing industry’s brightest and most brilliant stars into the spotlight, honouring everyone from creative colourists and runway rebels to local salon heroes, tireless educators, pioneers and trendsetters. So, which trophy will have your name on it in this, our most glittery and glamorous 20th birthday year?

The good news is, you’ve got 14 categories to choose from, including an exciting array of awards for individuals and teams, and a special category for freelance hairdressers. Even better, entry is absolutely free of charge ­– the only thing we ask for is that you’re a hair professional based in the UK or Ireland.

Judged by the best
Enter Most Wanted and your work will be judged by respected experts across the worlds of hair, fashion, design, media and the arts. This is important as it means your entry will not only be seen by top salon owners, but also by Vogue journalists, Central Saint Martins professors, dotcom entrepreneurs, leading session stylists and more. Each Most Wanted category has its own hand-picked panel of judges, and we’re confident it’s why we arrive at such interesting and well-deserved winners – game-changers like Sam McKnightAnthony Turner and Paula McCash, top-performing regional salons like Aberdeen’s Linton & Mac and Waterford’s Lloyds Hair, and the most respected names in men’s hairdressing like Tom Chapman, Jody Taylor and Darren Fowler.

You’re so worth it
