The details have been finalised for Mane Event 2024, a competition run by beloved Australian hair brand CPR Hair and the brand’s publication, titled The Circle. The event offers an opportunity to gain exposure by showcasing your skills with CPR Colour and Haircare in a total look entry, with entries already open for the second annual iteration of the competition.
Entries are open until April 30, 2024. The winner will be selected by a judging panel of industry leaders and announced at the CPR Hair Party on Saturday June 29, 2024, over Hair Festival weekend. The judging panel will assess colour, cut and styling techniques along with the overall creativity and professionalism of the final image.
The winner of the 2024 award will win a myriad of prizes, including $1,000 in prize money from CPR Hair, a $2,000 CPR Colour and Haircare package, a full-page feature in The Circle magazine, a feature in INSTYLE magazine, a creative photoshoot with CPR and the chance to become CPR’s next ambassador.
In the inaugural competition this year, the award was announced at the brand’s 60th birthday celebration, hosted with team members and media partners at Tankstream in Sydney. The top three consisted of Chloe Taylor of Loe Hair in Newcastle, Paul Graham of Paul and Paul Salon on the Gold Coast and Kirsty Bowler of Hair to Be in Alexandria Hills, QLD, with Chloe named as the winner.
“Being a part of The Mane Event Hair Awards was such an amazing experience that allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and push myself creatively,” Chloe shared. “It was so much fun bringing this look together with my model Laura. We spent one day prepping and colouring the hair and another in a studio collaborating with the creative team behind the shot including a photographer and make up artist. I was inspired to create something that was both edgy yet effortless. Although I wanted to achieve something on trend, it was important to me to put my own unique twist on it. I am so happy with how the look turned out and look forward to more creative content days in the future.”
Good luck and start your entries!
