Great Lengths GLammies

Great Lengths has announced its GLammies 2021 finalists, recognising some of the UK and Northern Irelands’s most talented extensionists.

The annual GLammies event is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will take place on Monday 7th February 2022.

Judged by a selection of the industry’s most respected names, along with editors from the hairdressing press, the GLammies by Great Lengths celebrate the craft, creativity and business of hair extensions.

The awards are split into six specialist creative categories, including awards for colour, bridal styles and volume. 2021’s event also saw the launch of eight regional categories, recognising entries that have used Great Lengths in their business to build a strong reputation, a loyal client base and an outstanding body of work.

Great Lengths has also introduced the Most Charitable Salon Award to shed light on their partnered charity, The Little Princess Trust. This award gives recognition to a salon who has donated the most removals of Great Lengths hair between April-July.

The most coveted award of the evening – the Great Lengths Trophy for Extension Excellence – will be awarded to a stylist that demonstrates a palpable passion for extensions, evident in both their business results and creative expression. The lucky winner will be invited to participate in the ultimate photoshoot experience, working with Great Lengths’ Education and Creative Team to choose a concept, before bringing it to life with an all-expenses-paid photoshoot with a professional make-up artist, stylist and photographer. The finished images will be used across the trade press and for digital and social media, providing a priceless opportunity for the winner to grow their profile.

In addition to the GLammies trophy, winners in each of the sixteen categories will each receive tickets for a tour of the Great Lengths production factory in Rome, with two night’s five star accommodation, meals and internal transfers for two people. The prize package also includes social media coverage and PR opportunities across both trade and local press, ensuring salons and stylists can publicise their recognition as the best in the industry.
