Bay Area Student Hairdresser Award Winners

The Bay Area Student Hairdresser Awards (BASHA) is always an event full of creativity and inspiration. This year marked four years of the inspirational BASHA awards. The 2015 BASHA Awards Ceremony gathered Thursday September 3 in Novato at the fabulous NH2 SALON and was presented by NH2 co-owners, Nicole Hitchcock and Nina Husen. The red carpet event also included a fundraiser to provide wigs for financially disadvantaged cancer patients through non-profit, Hairdressers with Heart. 

Sponsored by AVEDA, Sassoon Academy, and Novato based Cricket Co, BASHA is undoubtedly the most prestigious student beauty competition in North America, celebrating the artistry and skill of student professionals within the salon industry. As the pinnacle achievement for student hairstylists, past and present BASHA entrants, finalists and winners continue to push the boundaries of trend-setting style.

Drawing from leading editorial, celebrity, and platform artists whose work graces top fashion and beauty magazines, runway shows, and red carpets, BASHA is the culmination of style, beauty trends and sheer artistry.

Congratulations to these amazing, talented artists. For more information visit
