ENTRIES NOW OPEN FOR 2022

OUR GOAL

HBA began with an aim. An aim to celebrate the hair and beauty industry and create a positive, supportive community. We help businesses of all sizes reach their goals by recognising and promoting their talents.

Over the years we have watched as salons and hopeful individuals faced spending £1000's on award entries and ceremonies to gain the recognition they deserve for their hard work over the years - only to lose out because the fees are too high or gain little to nothing back. We believe that you should not have to WIN an award to receive exposure, that’s why we celebrate the entire process of our competition and the amazing talent that has entered.


We base all our decisions solely on the talent of individuals and businesses, new and old, large and small.

'I have worked so hard as a single parent, business woman. I could not have dreamt of entering any other competition because I know the costs involved and as a new business I would just not be able to afford the entry requirements.'

'It’s done amazing for my confidence, as a newcomer to the industry I feel I have so much to give but this last year it’s like i have been stuck in the starting blocks, but your competition gives me the confidence for the recognition to continue on my amazing journey '
