After this world tour, the winners will be invited to attend the great night of the hairdressing industry in Spain, on May 8th, where The International Hairdressing Awards®’ evening will consist again of a purple carpet –the red carpet of global hairdressing–, a catwalk with the most important hairdressing teams of the world, and the awards ceremony, where all the winners will be crowned.

It has been supported since its inception by an internationally recognised title sponsor who believes in the message and mission of these awards, the IHAwards main sponsor Revlon Professional. Likewise, Estetica Magazine acts as global media partner and The Hair MBA and Salon Look Madrid as sponsors.
