After a stellar 2019 showcase, the Hair Expo Awards are back for the turn of the decade and some things are changing. The most notable being that you can now upload collections online!

No more wasted trees or costly trips to the printers are needed as the time laborious task of printing and posting collections has been abolished. It’s oh-so 2020, don’t you think?

There are four simple steps to enter. Find a category that best suits you and check the rules that apply. Categories include, but are not limited to; Apprentice Student of the Year, Best Salon Design and Men’s Cutter and Stylist of the Year.

NB: If you’re looking for the Session Stylist of the Year, it’s had a name change. You can now find it under the new title of Master Stylist of the Year.

After you have picked your category or categories (if you’re feeling daring), familiarise yourself with the general rules and regulations.

Have a thorough read but the biggies include; having worked predominantly in the Australian or New Zealand hairdressing and related industries for the past 12 months, and submitting work that is your own.

Register yourself and then the fourth, final, and arguably the most fun step begins; shoot your collection!

Your submissions will be judged by a panel of international judges from all parts of the world.

Hair Expo is a great opportunity to express your creativity, stretch your skills and potentially change the course of your career.

Dee Parker Attwood from Wieselmann Salon won the 2019 Australian Hairdresser of the Year for her ambitious and technically brilliant collection.

“I’m really happy that this is the collection that got me to this incredible position. I’m so proud and thankful to be here,” said Dee after her win.

Entries due Wednesday 1 April 2020, 5PM AEDT (Sydney, Australia time).
