PBA Announces NAHA Finalists

by Gretchen Heber on Friday, April 30th, 2010

The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) announces the much anticipated finalists for the 2010 North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA)! Winning an award at NAHA, North America’s most esteemed beauty competition, has become a true pinnacle career achievement with the help of beauty professionals and the industry as a whole. Open to the entire beauty industry, the NAHA Award Ceremony is a not-to-be-missed evening of high energy, artistic expression, and the coming together of the professional beauty association to salute rising stars and industry icons. NAHA 2010 is part of PBA Beauty Week and will take place Sunday, July 18, at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.

NAHAs are given in 13 distinct categories including: Master Stylist, Hairstylist of the Year, Editorial Stylist, Student Hairstylist, Avant-Garde, Contemporary Classic, Fashion Forward, Haircolor, Salon Team, Salon Design, Texture, and Makeup Artist of the Year. 2010 marks the inaugural year for the Salon MBA award. The Salon MBA is designed to recognize savvy salon owners who have cultivated a cutting-edge salon and a highly profitable business.

NAHA also salutes two professionals who have made a significant impact and contribution to the industry. This year NAHA 2010 is proud to present its top honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award, to Beth Minardi, an internationally renowned haircolor specialist, educator and salon owner. NAHA 2010 is also pleased to induct entrepreneur, environmentalist, and philanthropist, Frederic Holzberger, into the NAHA Hall of Leaders.

PBA is proud to announce a record setting number of entries for 2010. More than 700 beauty professionals (an 18 percent increase from 2009 and a 35 percent increase from 2008) spent countless hours conceptualizing and bringing to life their artistic visions. The growth and breadth of NAHA entries from established hairstylists to those just starting their career is a testament to the power of NAHA.

NAHA judging was also enhanced in 2010 and focused on a diverse group of leading international hairstylists and makeup artists from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and Switzerland. Judges included Vivienne Mackinder, Tabatha Coffey, Ruth Roche, Sally Hershberger, Mary Brunetti, Darren Bain, Bennie Tognini, Robert Lobetta, Nick Arrojo, Kendall Ong, Cary Obrien, Jamie Carroll, Gary Sunderland, Heather Wenman, Karg, Antoinette Beenders, Dean Banowetz, Nicholas French, Sam Brocato, Anthony Morrison, Mark Hayes, Sharon Blaine, Jane Wild, Eveline Charles, Leon Alexander, Jonathan Lovett, Damian Stoney, Isabelle Sabourin, Petra Strand, and several others. Via a blind entry process, entries were narrowed down to five finalists per category, and one winner in each category will be chosen.

The NAHA festivities kick off with a Red Carpet Reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by a star-studded Awards Ceremony featuring special artistic presentations, live entertainment and special guest appearances. NAHA 2010 will also pay tribute to CUT IT OUT / Salons Against Domestic Abuse, a charitable organization developed for the salon industry to help raise awareness on domestic violence and help hairstylists and their clients seek treatment.
