The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA) are taking place this Sunday at Sydney’s Big Top Luna Park, meaning there are just 3 days left to secure your seat. The awards program is now in its 23rd year, honouring the relationship between hair, beauty, fashion and culture.
The AHFA is Australia’s largest independent hairdressing awards program, attracting hundreds of entries and a myriad of VIP Guests. This year a performance by X-Factor winner Samantha Jade is poised to be an evening highlight, set to be accompanied by a fashion show element by Redken.
Another key feature is a partnership with L’Oréal Professional Products, with support from all six of their brands, L’Oréal Professionnel, Kérastase Paris, Shu Uemura Art Of Hair, Redken 5TH Avenue NYC, Pureology and Matrix.
Finalist judging was finalised in London for 15 various categories. In the illustrious award of Australian Hairdresser of the Year the nominations are Frank Apostolopoulos, Kobi Bokshish, Claire Hicks, Sam Overton, Damien Rinaldo and Craig Smith. See here for the list of nominees in other categories.
The competition will be as intense as ever this year, as both industry legends and newcomers compete for an array of prestigious titles. Two new categories, ‘Newcomer of the Year’ and ‘Hair Fashion Video of the Year’, showcase all the established event has on offer for the future.
Revelling in artistry and strengthening the already significant ties between hair and fashion, it’s a good thing there’s still time to book yourself in to this calendar-highlight.
