Australian hairdressing icon and Matrix artist Kobi Bokshish has been given an illustrious honour, being named Global Hairdresser of the Year 2018 in the The Code Team (TCT) International Awards of Hairdressers & Makeup Artists. He will officially be crowned at the event on November 3, taking place in the Canary Islands in Spain.
Kobi’s Spanish adventures will also see him create an editorial photo shoot for Spanish magazine Showroom and create the hair show for the event titled LIVE018.
His award takes into account his achievements over the last year and within his career, relying on an esteemed judging panel to make the choice. Kobi was up against powerful competition, such as the impressive British Hairdresser of the Year Sally Brooks and American Hairdresser of the Year Shay Dempsey. His win speaks to the talent and creativity renowned in the Australian hair industry at large.
“It is a huge honour to be recognised through this award,” Kobi said. “I am fortunate to have been blessed with energy, determination and passion, and I spend most of my waking existence channelling these elements to inspire those around me”.
Congratulations to Kobi, and thank you for once again taking the Aussie hairdressing experience and giving it global renown!
