The Big One Trophy 2020 winners and The One For Colour

Tribu-te Magazine has announced the winners of The Big One Trophy contest for 2020 and the winner of The One For Colour is Marlon J Hawkins at Brooks & Brooks. Congrats, Marlon!

This is the second year of the UK edition of Tribu-te’s The Big One Trophy 2020, a competition well-established in Europe for 10 years. The magazine team says that more than 250 great portfolios we submitted across seven categories, and naturally our eyes were drawn quickly to the colour category – The One For Colour.

The finalists put up a close competition we speculate! We’re thrilled to see the winner took the title with a really special set of photographs. Bravo to Marlon J Hawkins at Brooks & Brooks. His collection of images is spectacular!

UK Publisher of Tribu-te magazine, Nicky Pope says: “This has been a coronacoaster of a year, and it’s been really uplifting to see our UK hairdressers continuing to be creative and challenge themselves with entries to The Big One.”

Key to this premium contest is that entrants didn’t need to shoot in a studio, or create specific collections of photography to show their skills. The Big One, says Tribu-te Magazine, is more interested in seeing how hair professionals work in the real world, and the range of skills, taste and imagination they possess in order to succeed both creatively and in the salon.

Deciding the winners, a panel of 14 judges included leading hairdressers from UK salons, industry professionals from the three sponsor brands, and the global publishing team from Tribu-te magazine.
