The Concept Hair Learner of the Year competition shines a spotlight on the UK’s most promising hairdressing and barbering students. Celebrating its fifth year, it provides a national platform for up-and-coming hairdressers and barbers to showcase their creativity across a breadth of categories.
Concept Hair Magazine aims to support, encourage and inspire apprentice and student hairdressers and barbers- the next generation of hairdressing talent.
2023 winner, Victoria Day from South Essex College, shares: “The whole experience has taught me so much and given me more confidence.”
Winning Concept Hair Learner of the Year not only gives you unrivalled recognition, but it also offers amazing prizes which truly mark the commencement of an illustrious career.
Round one invites participants to demonstrate their talent through photographic entries which are judged by top industry experts. The top six entries from each category will then advance to a live final at Telford College on March 21 2024.
Zoë Tanner, Managing Director at Concept Hair, comments: “We are very excited for the 2024 Concept Hair Learner of the Year competition. It's a national platform for aspiring next generation talent to shine. Let's celebrate the future stars of our industry together!”
