Honouring creativity, technical skill, vision and the ability to harmoniously combine hair colour and make up, the Colour Harmony Awards reward the work that is the best reflection of current trends while still embodying the spirit of Aveda.

Sankara, who hails from Sydney’s Lucespace, has specialised in Aveda colour for decades and was trained under Aveda’s Global Technical Director, David Adams. 1998 saw Sankara become the first Aveda certified colour educator outside of the USA and in 2002 and 2005 he was nominated for global colourist of the year.

As part of the prize, Sankara has won a trip to the next European Aveda Master Jam, valued at $5000.

The winning makeup artist, Carissa Buckley, receives a $1000 Aveda makeup kit.
