#GSGICON competition is now open!

Good Salon Guide ICON competition is a chance for one lucky salon team to win a day with uber talented photographer, Gary Halliday, the current 'King of the Nation', Rhys Andrews (our Nation's Favourite Hairdresser winner), plus the Good Salon Guide team to help you create your very own salon collection. We will literally be bringing the session to your salon!

So, how does your team enter? All you need to do is email us with your proposed photographic collection idea, this can be in the form of a Word document with all the details, images, and mood board snapshots. Your entry will need to include:

  • The name and theme of your collection
  • Visuals of your mood boards and ideas
  • A couple of practice looks on a model or dolls head so we can see your skills

On the day of the shoot (which will be arranged by us and the winning team), the GSG team will visit the salon/location along with Gary and Rhys to help with the final model prep. All colouring and cutting for the looks will need to be done in advance by the winners, but our awesome duo of Gary and Rhys will be advising and helping with the finishing touches and the overall shoot so you can get the best possible collection! Please be aware that models, make-up artists, stylists (clothing) on the day will need to be supplied by you!

The winning team will end the day with at least four images for their collection. The collection can then be used in any way the winner decides – website, competition entry, social media. We will also include the collection in our next GSG magazine.

Email your entry to:

The competition will close on the 8th February with the winners announced on Wednesday 13th. Salons must be a member of Good Salon Guide in order to enter the competition.

Good Luck!
