2019 Creative Finalists Announced for Australian Hair Fashion Awards

The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) is fast approaching, and now the finalists for the creative categories have been named. Business and product titles are set to drop later in the continued lead up to the dynamic event.

2018 AHFA Winners

The categories cover the best Australian hairdresser of the year, state categories, men’s hair, colour, multimedia, emerging hairdressers, Avant Garde and more. New categories were added last year, title Hair Shot of the Year and Digital Influencer of the Year, while 2019 sees the addition of Hair Transformation Video of the Year to truly capture 21st century hair brilliance.

2018 Australian Hairdresser of the Year Damien Rinaldo

The talented finalists were decided amidst a multitude of entries by acclaimed international judges such as Sam McKnight, Angelo Seminara, Akin Konizi, Zoe Irwin, Andrew Barton, Errol Douglas, Jamie Stevens, Gary Hooker and Michael Young, Cos Sakkas and Indira Schauwecker.

The work presented inspired the panel and now looks set to inspire audiences come April. Congratulations to these talented nominees, listed below.
