New Categories Announced for 2018 AHFAs

There are now even more opportunities to show your affinity for hair and fashion at next year’s Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs), with new categories being added to the agenda. As well as the usual awards dedicated to the best hairdresser in Australia, men’s hair, creative colour, Avant Garde, artistic team, best in each state, session styling, emerging talents, video, education, makeup, fashion styling, salon excellence and product awards, the new categories will prioritise digital and photographic brilliance.

2017 Australian Hairdresser of the Year Damien Rinaldo

The first all-new award is the AHFA Digital Influencer of the Year, which celebrates hairdressers propelling their business through various social media channels. This award goes beyond who has the most followers, but also who best uses social media to create engagement, influence others and boost their profile or brand with unique social media content.

2017 AHFA winners

Also added to the list is the category of Australian Hair Shot of the Year, a digital-only category that allows entrant to submit just one shot, either a previously seen image or a new picture entirely. No images submitted to other AHFA 2018 categories can be entered into this category, so scour your catalogue and choose wisely! The category is open to any hairdresser, with a $59 entry price tag for the first image, $100 for two and $40 an image for every entry thereafter (and there is no limit so enter as many as you like).

The entry process opens just next month, with entries closing on December 15th and judging to take place early next year, meaning it is definitely time to start thinking about your entries. Good luck!
