Now in its 34th year, the Hair Expo Awards stand for the utmost excellence in the Australian and New Zealand Hairdressing Industry.
The Hair Expo Awards take a holistic approach to assessing the achievements of entrants. Judging recognises artistic vision as well as business acumen, the ability to act as a role model and ambassador for the industry, and operating on a level that is truly world-class.
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 that showcases craftsmanship, passion, dedication and vision. The Hair Expo Awards can change careers forever…
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 selected as 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.
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. You'll supercharge your success on so many levels, not just through the awards!
Whether you win or not, the decision to enter challenges you to become what it takes to win, regardless of the outcome.
The Hair Expo Awards were created as the first Australian and New Zealand industry awards more than 30 years ago – from hairdressers, for hairdressers. Recognising the balance between what you achieve, think and give back throughout the year; and celebrating your creative vision has been in the Hair Expo Awards’ DNA from the very beginning.
The purpose of the Hair Expo Awards is simple, yet ambitious: to inspire the industry’s leaders to excel in their craft, their business, and to strive for integrity – and through that, to improve the industry as a whole.
