Who Will Be the First NAHA Newcomer Stylist of the Year?

NAHA Entry Deadline is Feb. 9, 2012

The North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) has added a new category for 2012. The NAHA Newcomer Stylist of the Year award seeks to recognize a rising talent in the professional hairstyling industry and is meant to bridge the gap between Student Hairstylist of the Year and Hairstylist of the Year. To qualify to enter, the entrant must be a licensed cosmetologist with less than three years of professional experience. A photo collection of three high resolution images must also be submitted for judging. Judging will be performed by the same level of internationally renowned hairstylists that currently judge all NAHA categories.

"I highly encourage stylists just starting out to enter NAHA and especially the Newcomer Stylist of the Year category. Winning a NAHA helps elevate your career immensely and puts you in front of top manufacturers and media outlets for education and editorial work," said Charlie Price, 2002 and 2008 NAHA Hairstylist of the Year.

As the most celebrated and prestigious photographic beauty competition in North America, the Professional Beauty Association (PBA), the producers of NAHA, encourages stylists to start the planning process early. With 13 categories to enter, ranging from Avant Garde to Salon Design, winning a NAHA is truly a career changing event! NAHA is open to all licensed cosmetologists and cosmetology students from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The entry deadline for all NAHA categories is February 9, 2012.

Applicants can submit their entries online (preferred method) or through the mail. All entries must be received by February 9, 2012. Helpful tools and tips on how to create a successful NAHA entry along with complete entry details and pricing can be found at probeauty.org/naha.

NAHA is part of PBA Beauty Week, North America's largest, most inclusive beauty event, which is hosted by Cosmoprof North America. The 2012 NAHA Award Ceremony will be held on July 22, 2012 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information about NAHA, please visit probeauty.org/naha.
