The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) for 2020 have taken place, and the inspiring collections of the winners are just the motivation the tail-end of your 2020 needs. The pinnacle award of Australian Hairdresser of the Year was won by Jamie Furlan of Xiang Hair, who was crowned for a group of six images you can’t take your eyes off.

The creative dream team consisted of photographer Andrew O’Toole, makeup artist Kylie O’Toole and stylist Melissa Nixon. Jamie used L’Oréal Professionnel products as an ambassador of the brand.

Titled Intentional, the bold collection showcases pops of multi-dimensional bright colour in a fiery, voluminous hero look, while also presenting unique sculpted and textural braids, white hair streaks and contrasting dual-tone colour, fabric-style short hair textures and original shapes and hair designs. The looks are set against a moody deep green background, and finished with textural, whimsical layered fashion choices and rosy, doll-like makeup looks. The overall aesthetic catches the eye with its ethereal beauty, while inspiring with a cascade of skilled and impactful techniques.

Jamie watched the awards via livestream from Melbourne and was celebrated and heralded by his salon and brand team at the jubilant announcement of his win. Congratulations!
