Guests that arrive between 9p.m. and 10p.m. will receive complimentary entry with an event invite that can be picked up at any of the participating salon locations or printed from home (see promo flyer)  In addition, the first 200 guests before 10p.m. will receive a gift bag.

Over nine years ago, event producer Benjamin Moline, brought this exciting show to life at a top night club in Chicago. Since then, the Supreme Salon Tour has traveled to and conquered Scottsdale,Arizona and Las Vegas. This show has had over 150 salons competing since 2000. Salons that place in the top three of their regional show have the opportunity to move on to the Nationals.

Recently, the first ever National finals was held in Las Vegas at Wasted Space in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The show was filmed and edited for pilot purposes. We have submitted the pilot to all of the major reality channels in the U.S. The Supreme Salon Tour has been approached to do this production in other countries as well, which is under consideration.

The Supreme Salon Tour “HAIR WARS” is a runway hair and fashion competition, that is judged and awarded. This show consists of top salons all over the country, displaying their creativity and style within their region. The top three salons in each city will move on to a National Finals.

Our goal is to host this industry night throughout the world searching for top salons, stylists, makeup artists, models, accessories, costuming, fashion lines & designers. Each show is filmed for pilot purposes with intentions of obtaining major sponsorships and media partners.– via SUPREME SALON

Don’t forget to also check out the nominees for 2010

Any  hairdresser can compete with the biggest names in the industry on a level playing field. This competition is based on photographic entries that demonstrate the skills & talents of the entrant. All entries are judged independently by a distinguished panel, with all entries remaining anonymous, and results counted and compiled by an independent firm of auditors.

HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year is the most prestigious prize in hairdressing. Each year the shortlist is nominated by an anonymous panel of hairdressing experts.  The nominees then create a collection of hairstyle photography that demonstrates their hairdressing skills and submit a CV that proves why they should be the hairdressing ambassador that is the British Hairdresser of the Year.

Competitions like this have significantly raised the bar of hairdressing in general. Let alone British hairdressing!   It’s huge publicity for all who make it in the top tier.  And winners, even if unknown, become overnight sensations.  The most pretigious award of the night – British Hairdresser of the Year – is recognized worldwide.  The winner officially becomes the ambassador for British hairdressing and appears on all forms of media outlets: TV, Radio, Print, Commercials, etc
