2011 NAHA Winners Announced!

Modern Salon | August 7, 2011 | 7:31 PM

“If you stick with what you love and don’t get discouraged by complications, your passion will be recognized,” says newly crowned North American Hairstylist of the Year Eli Mancha, in an exclusive interview with MODERN SALON. “Always be open to allow your vision to evolve into something greater.”

And something greater is what Mancha received on stage last night, as he received top honors at the North American Hairstyling Awards at PBA Beauty Week in Las Vegas. Mancha is the artistic director for the Lock & Loaded design team and owner of Bang! salon in Chicago. He and his team, along with winners in 12 other NAHA categories, were celebrated at the annual “Academy Awards of Hair”-inspired gala.

As proud co-founder and sponsor of NAHA, MODERN SALON Media congratulates all the winners, finalists and sponsors. Watch for an exclusive NAHA Winners Portfolio, sponsored by Matrix, in our August issue.
