Australian Hairdresser of the Year Winning Collection

It was a clash of the titans when four of our industry’s most famous figures went up for 2015 Hair Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year. Ultimately Redken Artist Dmitiri Papas of Papas and Pace took the title over Emiliano Vitale, Frank Apostolopoulos and Joey Scandizzo, winning with this collection, titled Collection 7.0.

As revealed in his winner’s speech, Dmitri and business partner/colourist Justin Pace had planned on both entering their respective categories with this one collection, until actually reading the rules and realising only one of them could use it to enter. It was then that Justin stepped out so that Dmitri could compete for the event’s major title, a decision that paid dividends when Dmitri took home the crown.

Comprised of innovative undercuts, chic short crops and Justin’s multidimensional colour tones, it’s no wonder this vibrant collection found success.

Dmitri follows in the footsteps of father Stelios Papas, an Australian Hairdresser of the Year in his own right. In a touching moment, Dmitri dedicated the award to his late mother, who passed away just as Dmitri opened his salon, and who encouraged him to reach for this goal.

See the inspiring images below and join us in giving Dmitri a collective pat on the back.
