NAHA Awards

NAHA, (North American Hairstylists Awards), is the hairstylist version of the Oscars. It's where bright new talent as well as experienced talent is all brought together and artists are recognized for their creative abilities. It's of the biggest trade shows of the year and it is held in Vegas. There are 13 different categories in which a hairstylist/makeup artist can submit their work. Categories range from Avant Garde, Texture, Hair Color to Master Stylist; It covers everything. There is so much planning and detail that goes into these shots. Everyone pours their heart and soul into these images and you can most definitely tell.

This all took place in mid July. I'm a little late but still I think these artists' work need to be shared. For those of you who read this blog and don't do hair for a living, this is art in it's truest form. For those who are in the beauty industry, I hope you are inspired by some of the pictures below. Enjoy scrolling thru these...Amazing work! Bravo to all the stylists who came in top 5 as well as the winners!
