Good morning and Happy Friday, everyone!
You might not be aware that there is an annual event in the hairstyling world that celebrates all things hairstyling. It’s sometimes known as “the Oscars of hair,” and it was held recently in Las Vegas – the perfect place for everything glam and glitzy!
The event’s official name is the North American Hairstyling Awards, and it is quite an extravaganza.
Categories for these prestigious awards include Stylist of the Year, Avant Garde, Haircutting, Styling & Finishing, and so many more. There are even categories for nail professionals and makeup artists, so it’s truly an all-inclusive experience for the beauty industry. You can read about the awards and the winners here on the Professional Beauty Association website.
And what about Aveda’s role in this? Glad you asked!
In true Aveda fashion, some of the most innovative looks came from Aveda stylists, and this year’s theme was flowers – as in pure plant and flower essences – which these creative people turned into hairstyles. Flowers from hair? Absolutely!
Find out all about the inspiration for these fantastically iconic looks on the Living Aveda blog. It remains to be seen whether or not this trend will translate to street and everyday style, but couldn’t we all use a lot more flowers in our lives? Something so fun and sunshiney about wearing flowers in your hair – or turning your hair into flowers! You can’t help but smile as wide as these gorgeous models at the NAHA!
Enjoy the weekend, friends. Take care of yourself and others, wear flowers in your hair, and take time to stop and smell the roses…or any flowers, really. We’ll see you back here on Tuesday.
