ABOUT THE HAIR EXPO AWARDS

DO YOU HAVE THE GOLDEN TOUCH?

Now in its 34th year, the Hair Expo Awards stand for the utmost excellence in the Australian and New Zealand Hairdressing Industry.

With a holistic approach, judging the delivery of criteria throughout a full year, the awards not only recognise artistic vision, but also business acumen, being an ambassador for the industry, an inspiration and role model for peers, and operating on a world class level. Entering is not just about becoming a finalist or a winner, it is about the year that entrants have dedicated to their craft, celebrating all facets of their growth and contribution. This is a prestigious and thrilling platform showcasing craftsmanship, passion, dedication and vision. The Hair Expo Awards can change careers forever…

THE COMPLETE PICTURE

The Hair Expo Awards not only celebrate your artistic genius through your photographic collection, but of equal value, your written submission marks the depth of your passion and success. It takes something special to deliver this winning combination. Your collection is the expression of your creative vision and proof of your exceptional skills. Your written submission is only required once you have been voted a finalist based on your collection. It describes your entire body of work throughout the year: career highlights, scope of work, inspiring people, giving back and raising industry standards.

WHAT ENTERING CAN DO FOR YOU

If you look into the submission questionnaires at the beginning of the awards year, you will find they will inspire you to grow your business, grow your team and your passion for the industry we know you love. Which in turn should supercharge your success on so many levels, not just our Awards!

Whether you win or not, the decision to enter challenges you to become what it takes to win, regardless of the outcome.

HOW IT BENEFITS THE INDUSTRY

The Hair Expo Awards have been created as the first Australian and NZ industry awards over 30 years ago – from hairdressers for hairdressers. The balance between what you achieve, think and give back throughout the year and your creative vision has been the Hair Expo Awards’ DNA from the very beginning.

The Hair Expo Awards’ purpose is simple, but all the more ambitious: to inspire the industry’s leaders to excel in their craft, business, and strive for integrity – and through that improve the industry as a whole.
