Starting in 2013, NAHA competitors will be able to compete in the new "Men's Hairstylist of the Year" category. The "Men's Hairstylist of the Year" will honor a stylist who displays the most proficiency in the designs and techniques used in men's styling and grooming. Entrants in this category must master current men's commercial, contemporary and wearable styling trends.
PBA has also announced a change in the rules for "Make-Up Artist of the Year." Make-up artists will be able enter in the "Make-Up Artist of the Year" category without the nomination of a hairstylist. By expanding the entry rules to allow make-up artists, an integral component to any NAHA entry, to enter the "Make-Up Artist of the Year" category without a stylist's nomination, it is PBA's hope that make-up artists not affiliated with a stylist or salon will be encouraged to submit their work independently.
"By adding the NAHA Men's Hairstylist of the Year category and expanding the rules for how make-up artists can enter the competition, our hope is that more stylists and make-up artists will be encouraged to enter for a coveted NAHA. New participation will enhance NAHA overall and help bring recognition to more key areas of the professional beauty industry," said PBA Director of Industry Programs and Education, Jessi Marshall.
The entry process for the 2013 North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) will open December 1, 2012. For more information visit probeauty.org or call 800.468.2274 (480.281.0424).
