BREAKING NEWS: Stylist Choice Awards Winners Announced!

The biggest names in hairdressing turned out for behindthechair.com’s sold-out 17th Stylist Choice Awards, which returned this year to Premiere Orlando. Get all the winners below!

 

See all the pictures from Stylist Choice Awards in our new galleries!  

 

Stylist Choice Awards is the show where hairdressers get to make their voices heard. You all voted on your favorites in hair care, styling, chemical smoothing, men’s products, tools, haircolor, extensions, lashes, nails and business builders. And on Sunday night at Premiere Orlando, we awarded the people and brands you love most with hosts Mary Rector-Gable and Kevin Givens!

 

Kevin and Mary are up to no good 😉

 

This year, Stylist Choice Awards was bigger than ever. We expanded to 70 awards. We saw amazing presentations by Matrix, Moroccanoil and Ulta Beauty. We experienced a Pop Art-themed presentation with models by BaByLiss, Bellami, Kenra Professional, L’ANZA Healing Haircare, The Salon by InStyle and Rebecca Taylor! And we got to see an amazing and moving tribute to Fabio Sementilli.

 

This show marked the launch of BTC 2.0—three totally new ways to experience BTC. From our mobile-friendly, relaunched website to our redesigned magazine to BTC University, this is the BTC of the future. We were thrilled to celebrate with all of you, and even more thrilled to honor the best in the industry at our Stylist Choice Awards!
