At Hairbrained we strive to create a platform where hairdressers can contribute, share and be recognized. Video has proven to be an incredibly powerful medium for the community and we believe it's time to reward and encourage those creating videos that capture the essence of the craftThis makes us very proud to announce The 2nd Annual Hairbrained Video Awards [HVA's].

HVA winners will receive much needed funding to aid in the production of future projects... thats right, cash prizes including a grand prize of $5,000 for the HVA Video of The Year!

All videos posted this year, January 1st and through the end of 2014, are considered eligible for the 2nd Annual HVA nomination. A panel of judges will choose from the nominees, a winner in each category, and an overall Grand Prize Winner.
