2020 HOT SHOTS FINALISTS ANNOUNCED


THIS ANNUAL COMPETITION IS NOW IN ITS 10TH YEAR AND IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR HAIRDRESSERS AGED 30 AND UNDER, SPOTLIGHTING TALENT, CREATIVITY AND AN UNRIVALLED PASSION FOR HAIR

2020 has once again been a year where the benchmark has been lifted based on the quality and number of entries into the annual HOT SHOTS Competition. Well established sponsors Goldwell, ghd, Excellent Edges and Amazing Hair combined with the owners of HOT SHOTS, mocha publishing, offer our HOT SHOTS Team incredible prizes and unique opportunities unlike any other competition in the hair industry today.

An enormous panel of National and International judges spent over 4 weeks of their own precious time, scrutinising all of the entries in the HOT SHOTS competition for 2020.

Joining the HOT SHOTS Team in 2020/21 as the Creative Director is once again, none other than multi award winner, educator, salon owner and our very own well-loved ‘Poppet’, the one and only Jayne Wild who will visit the team in the HOT SHOTS House as well as mentor and give creative direction at the very special photo shoot with acclaimed and award winning photographer – Andrew O’Toole.

NEW TO 2020 AND AHEAD - Due to the 2020 COVID 19 Situation, the new HOT SHOTS Team for 2020 will be now named as the 2020/21 HOT SHOTS TEAM with prizes including a stay in the HOT SHOTS HOUSE in June 2021, Overseas trip as guests of Goldwell later in 2021, photo shoot with Andrew O’Toole and all prizes issued from our wonderful sponsors, ghd, Goldwell, Excellent Edges and Amazing Hair.

This will allow the new team to enjoy a full year of incredible experiences and not be adversely affected by the postponement of the naming of the team at this time of the year. When the new Hot Shots competition in 2021 is launched for 2021/22, we will be increasing the cut off age to 31 or under so those people that were looking at entering this year for next, and who may be turning 30 will still be able to enter.

The Hot Shots Team of four will be made up of the winning entrants across the new 2020 categories and will be announced at the 2020 Australian Hair Industry Awards (AHIA) on 3rd May at The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Qld, where each finalist will receive a trophy and recognition on stage.

Each Winner will receive: -

  • A Beautiful Glass Trophy
  • A profile feature in Hair Biz Magazine
  • A full range of Electrical tools from ghd and invitation to be a member of the 2020 Style Squad
  • A full GOLDWELL Styling kit
  • $4000 worth of Excellent Edges Scissors and training
  • An Amazing Hair Extensions Kit
  • A Team Photo Shoot with Creative Director, Jayne Wild, Iconic Photographer Andrew O’Toole and award winning MUA and Stylist
  • An invitation to be a guest at the HOT SHOTS HOUSE, where they will spend 3 days of mentoring with top industry icons
  • PLUS, The Hot Shots Team will once again be going Global, enjoying an all-expenses paid trip to Goldwell Global Creative Awards in 2021
  • …And of course, a place on the HOT SHOT list, pushing them to the forefront of the industry.
