We’re looking for an eye-catching and chic salon design within the UK industry

- The competition The Big One is open to all UK hairdressers working in the UK, as well as non-UK hairdressers who are working in the UK.
- To enter The Big One, you must send us your entry dossier by midnight Monday 20th September 2021. For any enquiries, please email HERE.
- Your entry dossier must include:
• Four photographs – no more, no less for each of the 7 categories
• Credits for your photographs – this is compulsory to include photographer – we cannot be responsible for upsets if credits are missed off. Supplying credits is your way of confirming who took the photographs and that you have permission to use them for this competition and, if we wish, for us to publish them in print and/or online
• Your details – your name, salon, address of salon, telephone number, email address (compulsory) and social media handles (optional)
- You can send by WeTransfer or equivalent to firstname.lastname@example.org Only entries in digital format will be accepted, no printed documents or photographs
- You can enter several categories. However, the same pictures can only be used to compete in two categories
If you would like to enter more categories, you need to send more pictures!
- You must send in four photographs – these can be from the same collection or not, you decide.
- They don’t need to be studio shoots – if you’ve got a great photograph taken on a smart phone, that will be great too. But they must be good enough to make A4 format (21 x 29.7 cm) in 300 dpi. Ask your photographer if you are in doubt
- Photographs can be in colour or black and white (except for The One for Colour, of course where they must be in colour!)
- Photographs must be less than 12 months old at 13th September 2021. Salons for salon design can be refitted or redecorated or launched at any point in the past three years, ie since September 2018
- Photographs must be either head and shoulders, or max 3/4 length. Full-length is not allowed.
- Photographs must include no more than one model per shot.
