Twenty Czech and Slovak hairdressers compete for the title "Hairdresser of the Year" at the Industrial Palace in Prague. Young hairdressers under 21 have their own category - "Newcomer of the Year."
On Saturday, 20 Czech and Slovak hairdressers competed for the title Hairdresser of the Year at the Industrial Palace in Prague.
This year's competition was enriched by the world premiere of the hairstyle collection Essential Looks.
More than 14 hundred distinguished guests from 43 countries were sitting in the audience.
The collection was presented by British hairstylists Lesley Lawson and Tyler Johnston, a personal hairdresser of the actress Cate Blanchett.
We asked Tyler Johnston, where he got the inspiration for his new collection:
[Tyler Johnston, Famous Hairdresser]: "The collection itself is really heavily driven inspiration from the catwalks. That is basically where our looks come from. You know, from New York, Paris, Milan and London. And I work backstage a lot on those fashion shows and fashion weeks so I really bring back those looks."
Any professional hairdresser can take part in this Czech and Slovak Hairdressing Awards competition.
This year, the competition had twelve categories.
Young hairdressers under the age of 21 could compete in the category Newcomer of the Year.
Others took part in categories, such as Women Commercial Haircut, Men Commercial Haircut, Consumer Award, Press Award or Team Award.
At the end of the show the title Hairdresser of the Year 2011 was announced.
