NAHA 2022 Participants Announced!

The North American Hairstyling Awards is the most prestigious professional beauty competition in North America, and honors the salon industry’s top artists – who push the boundaries of skill and creativity.

This year there will be 14 categories of excellence, of which we will be entering into the Student Hairstylist of the Year Category.

The Nurtur Aveda Institutes selected one participant from each location based on their submission of a video sharing why they chose the Aveda Institute and why they should represent their school as well as before and after images of their haircut, color, style and makeup and a video of their process. Participants will take part in our annual NAHA photo shoot with award-winning photographer, Keith Bryce, for their entry to the NAHA Student Hairstylist of the Year for the 2022 awards.
