The 2018 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) took place last week, with elegant styling once again achieved by backstage heroes and hair partners ELEVEN Australia. Celebrity stylist and current HAIR Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year Joey Scandizzo, the brand’s co-creative director, was right at home leading the way on the red carpet looks for the prestigious event.

Hosted by Stephen Curry, the 2018 AACTA Awards ceremony guest list included Australian cinema royalty such as Nicole Kidman, Bryan Brown and Simon Baker. The ELEVEN Australia Styling Suite provided the perfect pampering option for these celebs, adding to an agenda that hosted a 2018 AACTA Awards Industry Luncheon held on November 3, as well as the ceremony event on November 5.

“Working with the Australian Film Institute and AACTA for the sixth time is a massive accolade and something we’re extremely proud of,” Joey said. “It’s an opportunity to work with an extremely talented group of Australia’s top talent and make them look amazing on their night of nights.”

Classic Hollywood waves were a major favourite for the glamorous event, and A-listers Marta Dusseldorp and Celia Massingham carried off this look to perfection with the help of ELEVEN Australia Smooth and Shine Anti- Frizz Serum. Modern texture was also a go-to, as demonstrated by Kat Stewart and with the aid of the brand’s I Want Body Texture Spray. For more architectural looks, like Melina Vidler’s structure top knot, the ELEVEN Australia Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray was a must.

The  AACTA Awards recognise film, television and documentary screen craft excellence across over 40 Awards, and the ELEVEN Australia team will soon head to Los Angeles to style the international version on January 4 2019.

Plenty of elegant inspo – coming your way.
