Cantu Curl Awards are back for 2020

Going against the grain of cancellations, the Cantu Curl Awards are back for 2020 to celebrate talent in textured hair


Leading textured hair brand, Cantu, have announced the return of Cantu Curl Awards for 2020! The innovative event launched last year and was designed as a space to celebrate the creative talent of hair enthusiasts and hairstylists throughout the UK.

Cantu Curl Awards sees selected finalists compete online with a series of hair challenges, tasked with creating a hairstyle on textured hair based on a chosen theme. A fun and interactive event, contestants go head-to-head producing short video content displaying their hair creations much to the delight of our receptive and supportive Cantu community.

Last year, London based hairstylist Tolu Agoro (@luscurls) was crowned the very first Cantu Curl Awards winner at a swanky event hosted by much-loved comedian Judi Love. After impressing the Cantu community and judges with her unbridled creativity, passion for textured hair and charming personality, she was awarded a grand prize of £5000 and a year-long ambassador role with Cantu UK.
