Cos Sakkas has added another international award to his armoury, this time Styling Collection of the Year at the annual One Shot Awards.
Presented by behindthechair.com, this year’s contest received nearly 300,000 entries from 100 countries in 48 categories. The announcement of the winners took place on 20 August at an evening of celebration in Austin, Texas. It also streamed live around the world.
“Waking up to hear that I won the Big Shot International Styling Collection of the Year was an amazing start to the week,” said Cos. “I’m proud to be flying the flag for British hairdressing around the world and also to be part of an industry that continues to be creative and inspiring.”
Created in 2015 by behindthechair.com Founder & CEO Mary Rector, #ONESHOT Hair Awards celebrates real artists working ‘behind the chair’ every day in salons around the world. “Traditionally, award competitions are only for hairstylists who can do a studio photoshoot,” Mary explains. “In the past eight years, over one and a half million entries have been recorded in the competition. We feel hair awards should have the same transparency where everyone is able to see each other’s work. With #ONESHOT, everyone sees the competition.“
