THE RISING STAR

For a young salon assistant who is enthusiastic, hard-working and fast improving – a new team star!

WHAT WE NEED – FOR THE JUDGES

The salon’s owner or manager must nominate their Rising Star. To nominate a Rising Star, you must submit the following:

VIDEO TESTIMONIAL – MAX 2 MINS
A video message introducing your nominee and singing his/her praises!
You have two minutes to sell your Rising Star to the judges, so talk about their qualities, strengths and skills. You must also highlight a single instance where their performance (under your employment) has been particularly impressive. Video file must be in .mov or .mpeg format and no longer than two minutes in duration. Smart phone footage is fine.

DIGITAL MOOD BOARD – MAX 4 PAGES
Your nominee must create a mood board about their hairdressing journey
Packed full of imagery and words, this digital mood board should showcase their passion for hairdressing and their journey through the industry so far. For example, the skills they’ve learned, the people they’ve met, what they love most about their job and what they hope to do next. The mood board must include an image of the nominee.

Rising Star nominees must have no more than three years’ salon experience and be educated to, or working towards, minimum NVQ Level 2 (or equivalent).

YOUR NOMINATION MUST INCLUDE A CREATIVE HEAD FOLDER

This digital folder must include:

  • one photo of your nominee
  • up to 10 of the images that feature on your nominee’s mood board
  • a scan of the picture page of your nominee’s passport. They must be aged 30 or under at the closing date of 14 June 2021.

Images must be minimum 300dpi and approved for use by Creative HEAD, should you reach the Grand Final.
