Fellowship Awards 2022 are back!

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Image Awards are back for 2022! The most anticipated awards in the hairdressing calendar sees hairdressers and barbers across the UK recognised for their innovation, inspiration and beautiful imagery.

Some of the most iconic hairdressers have won the award, including Nicky Clarke, Anthony Mascolo and Errol Douglas MBE. Now, the categories are open for entry, inviting hairdressers from across the UK – and internationally – to enter the awards with the stunning images they create. 

For 2022, images must be from 30 May 2021-30 September 2022 and rather than uploaded onto Instagram as in previous years, there is a special private entry portal. Closing date is 30 September, judging is totally anonymous, and the winner will be announced at the Fellowship Luncheon & Awards on 5 December.

Also launching for 2022 are the Art & Commerce Awards, previously known as the Business Awards, with two new categories.
