Participants gain valuable experience through seeking inspiration, creating solid concepts and executing their vision in order to submit their very best work. Hairdresser of the Year and TIGI Colorist of the Year winners also receive $1000 cash prize.
Rachel Brumbaugh this year’s Hairdresser of the Year was interviewed regarding her collection’s focus. “For my entries this year, I wanted to focus on the hair looking soft and balanced. I wanted them to feel classic, but have enough of a twist to stand out and be something a little different. Most of all I wanted a very clean feeling to my photos so that the main focal point would be the hair."
