The State Hairdressing Awards will be held on Sunday the 14th of September at the Italian Club in Perth. Entries from hairdressers in all states close on the 5th of September.

Total looks include makeup, clothing and accessories in the judges’ consideration. The event will also name the Individual Salon, Group Salon and Junior and Senior Stylist of the Year. Entrants are allowed multiple entries and no more than three models.
