• The International Hairdressing Awards®, with the collaboration of Salon Look, will be held in an innovative format adapted to current circumstances. • The awards will be hand-delivered to the winners in different corners of the world, as a surprise, and through live streaming in a journey that Mikel Luzea and Sergi Bancells will undertake in March.

“The International Hairdressing Awards 2021 is going to be an adventure,” said Mikel Luzea, director and founder of the IHA. “In such a difficult year,” Luzea comments "it is necessary to receive an award without being limited to online communication.” “We deserve the thrill, we deserve to be able to touch it.”

With this aim, and to convey all the effort and excitement involved in the organization and delivery of these international awards, Mikel Luzea and Sergi Bancells (global ambassador of the awards), will travel around the world from 16 to 23 March along with a camera team to hand-deliver the awards to the winners, as a surprise and with a live broadcast via the Internet. “The three finalists in each category will be notified to be in their salon at a specific time slot. No one will know what city we are in until we enter one of the salons,” said Mikel Luzea, enthusiastic about the project and its new format.

Live broadcast

In addition to live broadcasting at the moment of presenting each award, a docu-reality show will be made for television platforms with all the material obtained from this round-the-world trip comprising seven awards.

Julia González, director of the fashion, beauty and lifestyle fairs organized by IFEMA, including Salón Look, emphasizes that “at this time it is essential for Salón Look to support initiatives such as the IHA, which invigorate the hairdressing industry worldwide and strengthen our brand internationally, especially when they find formulas that adapt so well to the current situation.”
