We know it feels like you’ve barely recovered from the hangover you developed at the last Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs), but it’s time to snap out of it and start looking forward to the next event. The AHFAs have officially opened their entry process for 2019, and we have a feeling this is your shot at glory.
The artistic awards pay tribute to the high calibre of hairdressing, fashion and photographic talent in our local industry, as well as honouring salons and products. The awards utilise international judging talent in London to ensure our skills are truly at a global level and impressing some of the biggest names in the business.
There are updates to the process for 2019, for example every photographic category will now have seven finalists, while last year’s new Hair Shot of the Year category will have 10 finalists. Also, AHFA Apprentice of the Year contenders only need to submit three images, simplifying the process for our emerging talents. The aforementioned Hair Shot of the Year and AHFA Digital Influencer of the Year will be back for their sophomore outing to commend great editorial hair and notice who is dominating the all-important social media domain.
Entries are open as of this week so start creating and then jump online to put your work forward. Entries close on December 10 to make way for judging in London from the end of January, a live finalist announcement on February 19 next year and the gala night itself on April 14 2019.
Keep up with the community with the hashtag #ahfa19 and start channeling your creative energy into the best entry you’ve ever sent to a judging panel. You never know, your name could be up in lights.
