Meet the Winners of the 2023 ABS Global Image Awards


It’s official: the winners of the 2023 ABS Global Image Awards have been crowned!

On April 15th, 2023, salon pros and beauty leaders across the industry came together to recognize the emerging beauty competition’s finalists and well-deserved winners during the 100th America’s Beauty Show. It was an evening of excitement and fun that featured live music from hip hop tribute band, Too Hype Crew. Of course, the main event was the celebration of the industry’s top artists and their creativity.

The ABS Global Image Awards recognizes hairdressing talent on an international level and this year’s competition skyrocketed in popularity with participants from across the globe entering their fiercest creative collections. Unlike other industry awards, this image and video competition grants stylists and makeup artists of all levels to participate in a competition within a community of artists. As a competition that’s exclusive to America’s Beauty Show, the ABS Global Image Awards is certainly one to watch for years to come.

“The Global Image Awards is truly a fresh, attainable award that brings together talent from around the world. This competition is gaining more notoriety every year, elevating artists who are mastering their craft on an elite level,” says Karen Gordon, past president of Cosmetologists Chicago. “Thank you to all who entered—we had an extremely talented pool of competitors. And a big congratulations to this year’s winners for submitting remarkable collections and content.”
