“We are extremely pleased to renew our collaboration with a benchmark in online training, not only in our country but also internationally. This alliance confirms that the development of our profession and the artistic aspect goes through quality training. A commitment that honors MDB Education and reflects its responsibility with the Club and the sector”, comments the Board of Directors, that celebrates this agreement precisely in the edition in which an international category has been included.
From MDB Education, they also tell us their vision in this regard: “The mission of MDB Education is to democratize training under high-quality parameters, without borders, reaching everywhere. The agreement with Club Fígaro fully satisfies us, since it undoubtedly contributes to common commitments towards the sector, supporting and giving visibility to Spanish hairdressing at a national and international level”, says Beatriz Giménez - Artistic Director at MDB Education.
MDB Education is a Spanish startup that in just 4 years has become the world's leading platform for training in the beauty sector for Spanish-speaking professionals. Recently, after the acquisition of HairTribe, the leading platform in trend in the United Kingdom, it has established its headquarters in London intendint to start its expansion in the English-speaking markets offering multi-language educational content.

This educational project has achieved business growth of 254% in the last two years and its online training platform has more than 140,000 professionals in the sector, currently operating in 34 countries.
Likewise, Revlon Professional remains the official sponsor of Club Fígaro and the Spanish Hairdressing Awards, an entity that it has supported since its creation in its work for the recognition and promotion of creative Spanish hairdressing.
The objective pursued by Club FÍGARO is recognition, both professionally and socially; thus raising our profession to the category of excellence, just as sectors such as fashion or gastronomy did at the time. Our mission is aimed at making our work known, admired and respected, both in the national and international territory, thus consolidating an increasingly cosmopolitan and powerful industry.
The Spanish Hairdressing Awards, also called Fígaro Awards, value the photographic works of the hairdressing creations of the participating firms, to reward 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. Afterward, the professional jury, made up of prominent personalities from national and international hairdressing and which changes every year, individually and independently votes the collections submitted anonymously, so impartiality is guaranteed. To compete in the queen category of the contest, Spanish Hairdresser of the Year, hairdressers must have previously been prenominated 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 inception.
