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!”

ONE PICTURE CHALLENGE #globalhairunite To all our hairdressing friends and family. Through these difficult times of uncertainty, we are all pulling together as a community, extending our arms around the world. As a show of strength and unity we are challenging everyone to choose one picture from their back catalogue of images. An image with a positive message and fighting spirit, 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! Post your image either on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #globalhairunite with few words as to why you chose this image. By sharing all of these images we will show the world that together, through diversity and positivity we have the strength to carry us forward into a brighter future and will return stronger than ever. Tag and share Gary & Michael X This picture for us shows diversity, strength and beauty. Shot in 2013 it remains our favourite picture to date. @erroldouglas1 @seminaraangelo @anthonymascolo57 @tylerjohnstonhair @tommconnell @nickyclarkepersonal @eugenesouleiman @antoinettebeenders
