The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) for 2021 took place last night and salons, hair artists, brands and more were celebrated for their talents in the industry’s night of nights.

The pinnacle of these awards was the AHFAs Hairdresser of the Year title, this year won by Hermiz of Joey Scandizzo Salon for his bright, artistic collection. See that full collection here.

The group of images runs the gamut of colour, shape and texture, altering the very definition of hair and staying unified in its sense of true creativity. With paint, feathers and confetti taking over the traditional notion of hair, and a daring approach to complementary beauty and style, this is a fittingly celebratory collection to win the title as we approach the festive season.

Hermiz took to the stage in humble disbelief at winning the award, speaking touchingly of his relationship with Joey and what the award means to him, while commenting on the significance of hairdressing and hair artistry. Hear, hear! Congratulations Hermiz.
