Many of you hairdressers have probably thought about entering a competition but never gotten to it, or never been able to push yourself to do it. It might be outside of your comfort zone or maybe you just haven’t been able to find the extra time.

THE EXPERIENCE – IMAGINE IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE FINALISTS!

EXPAND YOUR NETWORK
Few contestants can manage the entire creative process on their own. Creating a good photo requires more than just hair skills, you also need makeup skills, photography skills and a studio or place for the photo shoot to take place. This might force you to get in contact with people of other professions. If you on top of this are one of the finalists, you will be invited to the event in Copenhagen where you will meet a lot of fellow hairdressers from the Nordics. Imagine that!
