2017 Awards

The Scottish Hair & Beauty Awards (SHABA) is Scotland's largest and most successful independent hair and beauty awards.  The annual competition has been growing steadily each year, (now in its 7th), and attracts hundreds of entries from salons and individuals across Scotland. Entries are judged by a panel of industry professionals, each of whom brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the judging process.  The awards are designed to showcase Scotland's creative talent,  reward those who excel in their field and perhaps more importantly - celebrate together as one powerful and exciting sector at the gala dinner.

The competition is open to individuals and salons operating in Scotland..  There are 30 titles to be won across a range of Hair, Beauty, Aesthetics, Barbering, Make up Artistry and Businesses.  To enter simply go to the SALON ENTRY TAB at the top of the page, there you will find full information on the titles available and instructions on how to enter.

Why you should enter

Hosted by one of Scotland's Hippest Publishing Houses -  MediaNV.  The benefits of taking part are unique. All shortlisted candidates will receive fabulous coverage within either SalonNV or BarberNV.
