NHA 2018

The 2018 Vann.Edge Northwest Hairstyling Awards presented by Eufora, Salon Services, and HattoriHanzo will be held November 14, 2018 at Block 41 in Belltown. We are celebrating five years with the new formation of our non-profit NW Hair-Styling Association. This gives us an increased ability to not only focus on sustainable and earth friendly products, but also to support charitable causes.

All proceeds from this year’s event will go to support the Wildfire Relief Center. Finalists have been chosen from recommendations by industry leaders in the Pacific Northwest. Winners will be chosen through a judging process including international experts in the fashion and hair industry and announced at the awards ceremony.

The Northwest Hairstyling Awards will feature hair shows partnered with salons across the greater Seattle area honoring our local firefighters. Additionally, we will present the fifth annual Gary Howse Heart & Hands Award, created to honor industry leaders who demonstrate both technical excellence as well as philanthropy.
