HOW TO ENTER

ENTRY PERIOD CLOSED
FEBRUARY 17, 2020 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2020

Here’s How to Enter:

  • Pick the categories you want to enter.

  • Post a photo or video on Instagram with the appropriate hashtags in the CAPTION between FEBRUARY 17, 2020 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2020

  • TAG @behindthechair_com & @oneshothairawards in the CAPTION and on the photo or video.

  • ONLY use the hashtags that are appropriate for your image. DO NOT use all hashtags on all photos.

Overlays:

  • Adding the overlay helps our judges see your entries! We like to call it extra credit!

Rules:

  • #ONESHOT IS FREE TO ENTER.
    You can enter as many times as you want, in as many categories as you want, and there is zero entry fee.

  • YOU MUST BE LICENSED.
    For all hair categories, you must be a licensed cosmetologist to enter (or in cosmetology school or an apprenticeship for the Student category). To enter the Nails category, you must be a licensed nail technician. The Makeup category does not require a license.

  • HASHTAGS MUST BE IN THE CAPTION—NOT THE COMMENTS.
    For your entries to be eligible, place the appropriate category hashtags in the caption of your entry, not the comments section.

  • ENTRIES MUST BE CREATED BETWEEN APRIL 9, 2019-SEPTEMBER 1, 2020.
    Work created before April 9, 2019 should not be submitted.

  • DON’T PLACE HASHTAGS ON OLD POSTS.
    Only entries posted during the official #ONESHOT entry period (February 17-September 1) will be considered. Do not add #ONESHOT hashtags to old posts.

  • HERE ARE THE TYPES OF ENTRIES ACCEPTED.
    Transformation and Extensions categories require one side-by-side photo showing the before and after, with the client’s face visible. We suggest using Instagram’s Layout app ( Apple App Store / Google Play ) to place pictures together, side by side, in order to create one image as your entry.

  • Carousel posts are ONLY accepted for BIG SHOT Collections and HOT SHOT Salon Decor & Suite Decor.

  • BIG SHOT Collections entries must be three images, with models’ faces visible in all three images.

  • IMAGES ARE ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR THE CATEGORIES IN WHICH THEY ARE TAGGED.
    For example, if one hairdresser does a haircut and another does haircolor, and the image is chosen to be a finalist in a haircolor category, the hairdresser who did the haircut will not be attributed as a finalist.

  • BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE A SIGNED RELEASE FORM FOR YOUR ENTRIES.
    On request, entrants must be able to provide a signed release form for all persons who appear in the photograph or video submitted, and/or from the owner of any material that appears in the photograph or video entry.
