The Glammies Awards By Great Lengths Is Coming To Ireland And Entries Are Now Open!

After a busy summer filled with weddings, events and celebrations, there’s now even more reason to celebrate those post-lockdown transformations. This year, the ultimate awards for extensions are back for the fourth year and are bigger than ever with new categories and plenty of glamour and style!

The GLammies by Great Lengths is now open to salons and stylists across the Republic of Ireland and seeks to celebrate the craft, creativity and business of extensions. With six creative categories and six salon categories (three new for 2022) including the coveted Great Lengths Trophy for Extension Excellence, there are no shortage of options to show off what you can do.


Great Lengths will be rolling out the red carpet for the GLammies with a glittering ceremony for finalists, where the winners will be crowned and receive their exciting prizes – including tickets for a group tour of the Great Lengths production facility in Rome, with two nights 5* accommodation, meals and internal transfers for two people.

All winners will also receive a GLammies trophy, logos for marketing, social media coverage and plenty of PR across the country in both trade and local press – all of which will allow salons and stylists to stand out from the competition and mark themselves out as the best in the business.


Entries are now open and close on 1st October. Visit www.greatlengths.com/ie to find out more about each category and to submit your entries.
