After surveying global editorial entries, the winner of the Hair Shots 2 The World 2022 Collection of the Year has been named, with the title going to No Vacancy by industry legends Bernadette Beswick and Stevie English. The collection received the most covers facilitated by Hair Shots 2 The World in the past calendar year.
“Congratulations to Bernadette and Stevie, whose synergy shines bright in this stunning multi-award winning collection,” said Hair Shots 2 The World’s Leanne Cutler. “Editors around the world have recognised the excellence in cut and colour in this outstanding collection shot by industry legend, Andrew O’Toole.”
No vacancy combines bold colour and cutting-edge hair cut techniques to elevate and inspire the industry, as motivated by global travels, particularly through Japan and the neon signs in Tokyo. The collection was created with photographer Andrew O’Toole, makeup artist Chereine Waddell and stylist Jessica Jade.
“We wanted to create colour that pops against black, like neon against the night sky. The focus of the haircuts are graphic shapes mixed with movement of modernised layering to create a twist of classic and creative,” Stevie and Bernadette said, in their colour work and hairdressing skills, respectively.
The award speaks to Hair Shots 2 The World’s longstanding editorial impact. The platform has been distributing hair fashion collections to hair media worldwide for 12 years, with success as represented in collections such as No Vacancy.
“Print and digital hairdressing media happily co-exist and, while there have been many changes since commencing the world-first, dedicated service in 2010, editors have always demanded high quality images, which is something Australia and New Zealand do well at producing,” Leanne said.
Congratulations to Bernadette and Stevie on this deserved recognition.
