The contest

The Spanish Hairdressing Awards, also called Figaro Awards, value the photographic works of the hairdressing creations of the participating firms, with the aim of rewarding the most outstanding creative hairdressers in the country. They consist of five categories and were established in 2009 to give notoriety and visibility to the artistic work of Spanish hairdressers. The basic objective pursued by Club Fígaro with the creation of these awards is the social and professional recognition of hairdressing in Spain to consolidate an industry that is increasingly cosmopolitan and powerful.

Participating hairdressers register online to participate and upload their photographic collections to the Club Fígaro website. Afterwards, the professional jury, made up of prominent personalities from national and international hairdressing and which changes every year, individually and independently votes the collections presented anonymously, to guarantee the impartiality of the awards. To compete in the queen category of the contest, Spanish Hairdresser of the Year, hairdressers must have previously been pre-nominated by their colleagues. This award rewards, in addition to the photographic collection presented, the professional career during the last year.

Club Fígaro has the support of its main sponsor Revlon Professional, a firm that has sponsored the Awards since its creation.
