In town halls and exhibition centres across the country, competitive hairdressers are regularly going head to head in pursuit of trophies and diplomas. The most successful of these dream of being selected to represent the UK at the World Hairdressing Championships. Held every two years, the biggest and most prestigious of all hairdressing competitions attracts the best competitive cutters from 49 countries for a showdown in a frenzy of hairspray and scissors.

“A near perfect documentary… this film moved you from laughter through anger to tears”
