With the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards looming, this is the season when hair and beauty professionals would normally be asking clients to shout their praises from the rooftops.

At this testing time, however, the organisers have decided to delay the public vote. This will give the industry a chance to overcome these challenges and emerge stronger before the big gala event in the autumn.

SHABA holds a public vote every year, so your clients—the people who matter most—get to show their love and support for our industry. Last year saw a record number of votes cast to decide the finalists. The vote will go ahead this year and details will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Once the public vote has taken place, a team of expert judges will get to work, using their collective experience to decide who will make the final cut. They’ll look at the quality and consistency of work and customer service skills, so remember that reputations will not precede you!

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of SHABA. SHABA X promises to be the biggest and most glamorous yet. The night will bring together the industry’s brightest stars to celebrate the best of the best, mingle and party.

SHABA founder, Joanne Reid, said, “This virus means 2020 will be a year none of us forget. I hope this will make that feeling of stepping on to the red carpet even more special this year.

“We’re working to make sure SHABA X is the event that the wonderful professionals in this industry deserve.”
