When the winners are announced they will each be given the hairdressing industry’s greatest seal of approval – a Most Wanted Trophy.
But they will also enjoy an exclusive prize courtesy of their category sponsor and receive profileboosting editorial coverage in Creative HEAD magazine and its associated titles and websites, resulting in global exposure that will see their profile propelled into the spotlight.
Catherine Handcock, publisher of Creative HEAD, said: “Record entries to this year’s Most Wanted means these will be our most fiercely contested trophies ever. To have made the finals is an amazing achievement – something that marks you out as an exceptional talent.”
