Shows, trade fairs, and other events continue to be absent during this trying period, which means that it’s high time a positive wave of energy was sent through the world of hairstyling.
And that’s why Ludovic Beckers (Art Director at Curve-O) came up with this innovative concept, the 2020-2021 Design & Color Awards International – an all-new, never-seen-before, online award.
Previous awards have made us all aware of the tremendous investment involved in coordinating a model, styling, photographer, and make-up artist, and how it was the sole purview of a select group of hairstylists.
This reason, among others, was our incentive to launch a more democratic campaign based on a basic template mannequin head (blank sheet), where the hairstylist is able to visualise their creation with a smartphone.
We love to see your progress while creating. Share your pictures on Instagram (@designandcolorawards) and activate your public and fans by using #designandcolorawards.
