THE CALL FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE FÍGARO AWARDS WILL OPEN IN APRIL 1!
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.
