Sponsored by Goldwell, Cloud Nine and label.m, the AHFA’s are a celebration of the synergy between hair, fashion and culture and this year’s winner list features a roll call of the who’s who of the hair, beauty and fashion industry.

Editorial stylist Richard Kavanagh and actress Erika Heynatz took on the role of MC’s for the evening, and X-Factor winner Dami Im performed several songs including Roar, her single Alive and a beautiful rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water.

M Division’s David Mannah was proud to see the AHFA’s come to life. “It’s a thrill to see the most inspiring people within our industry all in the one room, and awarded for their exceptional skill. The night was a sell-out, demonstrating the importance of events such as this one to continue to inspire our Australian creatives to strive for excellence on a global standard,” said David.
