Drumroll please… a new date has been set for 2020’s Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs), which had been postponed from its usual April date due to COVID-19. The beloved awards event, which champions national hair, beauty and fashion talent and brings the industry together – a particularly significant quality in a challenging year – will now take place on Sunday November 8.

Announced on social media, the event aims to showcase the industry’s strong sense of unity and celebration, after a year that has seen many events cancelled and the industry physically separated through border closures, lockdowns, missed events and so much more. The event partners with styling and tech juggernaut Dyson, again promising inspiring looks, a live show and a passion for hair, fashion and art in the room that can’t be compared.

The talented finalists have already been announced, so click away to refresh your memory of the skilled hairdressers on the list. Additionally, the event will house a new category. The Industry Choice Collection category is open to any collection that could not be submitted for other events this year, as shot from January 1 2020. Entries open on September 1, after which 10 finalists will be announced to compete for the prize.

Tickets will be available for this new event from September 28, and the event will adhere to all the event, social distancing and health and safety guidelines necessary in Sydney, where the event will be hosted at Luna Park, as always. Start counting down to something to look forward to in 2020.
