Consider this the gun blast at the starting line, or a much-needed reminder that you need to begin constructing your entries for the 2016 Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) – stat!


The 2015 AHFAs

Entries are now open for the 2016 AHFAs, with the deadline looming as December 7th 2015, and the event announced as April 10th 2016. The awards will return to Luna Park to honour the best in the business, host the industry’s biggest stars and showcase an as yet unannounced celebrity guest to follow in Samantha Jade’s sizeable footsteps.


Focused on the crucial connections between hair, fashion, beauty and art, it’s no surprise the awards partner with global hair fashion leaders L’Oréal Professionnel.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with The Australian Hair Fashion Awards for 2016,” shared Ian Harman, General Manager for L’Oréal Professionnel. “The event shares and celebrates what L’Oréal Professionnel is all about, supporting outstanding talent in the industry, incredible hair and it’s intrinsic link to fashion. This event is a must enter for the Australian Hair community. The international judging panel represents the very best of the world’s leading hairdressers and to be recognised and nominated as a finalist in any category is an incredible achievement. To win, well that’s what dreams are made of.”

Business awards will be judged by leading national business experts and media, while photographic categories will each be judged in London by top British Hairdressers including Errol Douglas MBE and Trevor Sorbie MBE.
