The 2017 North American Hairstyling Awards have been handed out, with winners in sixteen categories representing the very best hairdressing the US has to offer. As we in Australia look to North America for guidance in many sectors, these winners, and their inspiring photographic looks, provide plenty of inspiration for your own editorial aesthetic.
The awards ceremony honours professional hairdressers in categories of colour, cut, style, texture, men’s and Avant Garde, also rewarding students and newcomers, salon teams, salon design and moving beyond hair to makeup and nails. Hairstylist of the Year and Master Hairstylist of the year stand out as major achievements.
