What is #globalhairunite? The Positive Picture Challenge Sweeping Instagram

by akesha / last updated March 30, 2020

The current Coronavirus outbreak has sparked an influx of new dance challenges on Tik Tok and picture challenges on Instagram but one that has been taken under the wing of hairdressers is #globalhairunite.

Started by Hooker & Young, the challenge invites participants to upload a picture to their Instagram feed that promotes a positive message and depicts a fighting spirit. The caption on the original post reads that the chosen photo could be. “a picture that you love beyond all others, or simply the image that for some reason will always be ‘that’ one special picture. Now we know this is an incredibly difficult task! Heaven knows most of you have a colossal amount of imagery, so choosing only 1 is a BIG ask!”

People have been jumping on the challenge, with Sally Brooks picking one of her images from her British Hairdressing Award-winning collection from 2018.

Alongside the image she wrote, ” I love this image more today as to me it is tranquil- delicate and beautiful – it’s calming in these times – hairdressers around the world will pull together and we will stay strong – I wish all my hairdressing friends around the world love and strength and please not to go mad at this time 😬 it’s a hard ask choosing one picture and I can’t wait to see everyone else’s – but this is my picture and my message to stay calm , we will be stronger at the end x”
