The winners of the 2018 International Beauty Industry Awards (IBI Awards) were announced this week in New York City. Hundreds of hair stylists and makeup artists from countries around the world submitted their work for a chance to win the world’s first globally inclusive, online-only hair and makeup competition in its inaugural year.
In contrast to traditional hair and makeup competitions, IBI Awards candidates are judged solely on their work. IBI’s independent Judging Council is made up of industry experts who do not see any identifying information, such as names, clientele, following, sponsorships, backgrounds or the candidate’s country of origin. Submissions, judging and announcements all happen on IBI’s new innovative online platform. Candidates are not required to travel to an event, making the IBI Awards the most globally accessible award of its kind.
