The Professional Beauty Awards Hall of Fame is one of the highest accolades and achieving a place is no mean feat.

To be inducted in to the Professional Beauty Awards Hall of Fame, salons, spas, clinics and individuals must win the same category at Beauty, Hair & Spa Awards three times.

Once a salon, spa, clinic or individual has achieved a place in the Beauty, Hair & Spa Awards Hall of Fame, they can no longer enter this category. Hall of Fame inductees must wait two full years before re-entering their Hall of Fame category. For example, a salon, spa, clinic or individual entering the Hall of Fame in 2024 could not re-enter their Hall of Fame category until 2027.

The Hall of Fame list will be based on winners since the Hall of Fame began in 2024. The list will be updated annually with the incredible salons, spas, clinics and individuals once they have been inducted to the Hall of Fame.

2025 entries are now open
