An Insider's Guide to NAHA: 3-Part Web EventAn Insider's Guide to NAHA: 3-Part Web EventNow that the 2014 North American Hairstyling Awards winners have been announced and celebrated, stylists and salon owners across the nation are turning their attention to next year's entries.

Known fondly as “the Oscars of hair,” NAHA is the preeminent photographic hairstyling competition in the U.S. and is renowned internationally. Placing as a NAHA finalist can forever change an artist's career. In fact, just entering NAHA can reignite your passion for the industry, enhance your technical skills and help you forge lasting professional relationships.

But entering can also be intimidating. That's why the Professional Beauty Association and celebrity stylist Michael Shaun Corby have partnered to develop a three-part webinar to introduce the NAHA process to first-time entrants. Those interested can participate in a single session or attend all three to get an insider’s perspective on how to successfully enter NAHA.  Webinar topics include the benefit of entering NAHA, what NAHA judges look for when evaluating entries, and how to create a successful NAHA photo shoot.  Past and present NAHA judges and winners will be on hand to give advice and reflect on their NAHA experiences as well.

The first session is Monday, July 28 at 1 pm EST.  Corby, a NAHA judge and Global Creative Director of Alterna Professional Haircare, and Mary Brunetti, Director of Education at Sally Hershberger Salons,  will discuss the benefits of entering NAHA, the rich history of the event and the opportunities that emerge from a NAHA win.  This 60 minute session includes a “sneak peak” of sessions 2 & 3 and an opportunity to join the conversation.
