NEW FOR 2024: Both technical and Editorial Category requires only one image only for submission


In 2024, Kao Salon Division UK & Ireland is thrilled to present the Global Collection Awards mentorship programs designed to empower hairstylists for entry into the Global Creative Awards 2024 competition.


For the upcoming year, there will be a distinctive change in the competition format. The 2024 contest will exclusively feature a photo-only format, with stylists submitting a single image for all categories, including editorial. Notably, there will not be a live technical competition in 2024. Instead, all national winners will advance to a virtual global competition.


In response to this unique change for 2024, we are excited to announce our GCA mentorship programs:
