Months of planning, practicing on mannequin heads, taking the perfect photos, and working with vision has paid off for select entrants of America’s Beauty Show’s (ABS) renowned international competition this year.

America’s Beauty Show and Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) are proud to announce the finalists of the fourth illustrious 2020 ABS Global Image Awards.

Its most popular year ever, the ABS Global Image Awards drew in a massive number of competitors from across the globe. The competition celebrates the passion and artistry of professional and emerging stylists in a photo competition that features seven professional categories and two student categories. Images were judged on how well entrants executed new and unusual or experimental ideas on one model.

Entering the Global Image Awards allows stylists and students to embrace their creativity, build confidence and shoot for the moon,” says Karen Gordon, president of Cosmetologists Chicago. “The styles and looks we see from this competition are a representation of what’s trending around the world and what’s next in beauty. Congratulations to all of the finalists and to all of the extremely talented students and professionals who entered this year!
