What is the entry process in 2021?
Entering Wella Professionals’ TrendVision Award 2021 will give you the chance to showcase your skills while doing what you love best – hairdressing. The best part is TrendVision Award 2021 is open to all hairdressers. Plus, there is a category to suit everyone, including two new categories open for students.
Which category is right for you?
There are five categories designed for hairdressers and two new categories specifically for hairdressing students. The five hairdressing categories are open to all hairdressers aged 18 and above and you do not need to be a Wella Professionals salon or hairdresser to take part. You can enter each category once, but you must submit a different look on a different model for each entry. If you get through in multiple categories, you will be put through in the category where you scored the highest.
