The Big One 2021

Wow! What a comeback – after Covid, business interruption and countless challenges, we’re so respectful of anyone who can hold their job, business and career together! So massive high-5 to the 175 entrants for the Big One 2022 who showed us how resilient, upbeat and blooming creative hairdressers continue to be.

Judging 2022 style

We had 33 hairdresser judges to peruse the seven categories for the Big One 2022. All eminent personalities and high-achievers themselves so you can be sure they knew what they were after in worthy finalists for each category. If you’re selected to go forward to the final, then well done for sure. And if not, still be proud – you’ve shown such fortitude and self-expression and we love you for it. Now to the big reveal:
