Foxtel presented the 6th annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards last week, pulling in ELEVEN Australia as the hair partner for a night that honoured our local entertainment industry.

With the hair styling covered by ELEVEN Australia Co-Creative Director Joey Scandizzo and his hairdressing team of eight, the backstage crew styled a myriad of Australia’s most renowned entertainment exports, assisting them through the AACTA Awards Styling Suite that came before the flashing red carpet. Bonnie Sveen, Zoe Ventoura, Melina Vidler, and Sophie Hensser were just some of the celebrities to have their hair styled by the team.

“We are extremely proud to be working with the Australian Film Institute and AACTA again in 2016,” Joey said. “It’s a privilege to work with the nation’s top film and television talent and help celebrate their achievements at the industry’s biggest awards ceremonies.”

With Joey Sandizzo Salon frequently brimming with star clients and his own hairdressing experience backstage, Joey stands as a red carpet expert, and his classic looks for the AACTA Awards could point to what’s to come for upcoming local and international events.

Sophie Hensser

Hair looks created by ELEVEN Australia for the night included modern textured ponytails, classic up styles, perfect polished waves or salon-worthy sleek, straight hair.

The awards show honoured entertainment patrons across 45 awards, for acting, producing, screenwriting and more on platforms such as film, television and documentary work. When acknowledging the very best – that perfect ponytail is essential. Well done ELEVEN Australia!
