Hair Expo Awards
HOW CAN THE HAIR EXPO AWARDS HELP YOUR CAREER?
The Hair Expo Awards have been elevating outstanding talent in the Australian and New Zealand hairdressing industry for 35 years. The Awards provide a platform to showcase talent, craftsmanship, passion, dedication and vision. Representing the complete picture of what exceptional hairdressing is, the Awards celebrate and recognise outstanding creativity and business acumen. They provide the opportunity to become an ambassador, role model and mentor both within your team and to your industry, at home and around the world. This is a prestigious and thrilling platform to show who you are, what you are capable of, and to take your career in a dynamic and rewarding direction.
THE WINNING FORMULA
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.
WHAT’S NEW FOR 2020?
We have extended the entry due date for both the Creative and Business categories to Wednesday 1 April 2020, giving you more time to prepare your collection.
Due to popular demand we have changed the judging panel to international judges only - this also means there is no longer the need to print and post your photographic collections, a significant time and cost saving for all creative category entrants.
Master Stylist of the Year replaces Session Stylist of the Year, opening up the category to include all hairdressers with a love of styling. This category now only requires 3 collection photos and no written submission! The Men’s category has been updated to Men's Cutter and Stylist of the Year. Open to both hairdressers and barbers, judges will be looking for a variety of technical and creative cutting and styling skills.
New Video requirement: In the categories of Australian Hairdresser of the Year, New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year & Colour Technician of the Year, entrants will now be required to supply an approx. 5-10 second video of each of their completed models. For more information see the rules and regulations here.
