NAHA 20 Party Pics and Braggin’ Rights

NAHA 20 was an event one will never forget.  Not only were 12 amazing hairdressers, colorists and teams celebrated for their astounding entries, collections and work, but spellbinding presentations and honorary awards made the room glow with adoration and inspiration. 

The night started off the right way; 20 years of past winners commemorated for their wins.  Not only was it a video montage filled with emotional moments, but past winners hit the runway and walked with their chins held high to a crowd of adoring fans, colleagues and future NAHA winners. 

Once they took their seat, that’s when nominees turned into winners.  In case you missed the event and our breaking news announcement got dumped in your spam folder, we’re proud to announce the winners of NAHA 20:
