The North American Hairstyling Awards united the industry in a celebration of top talent and artistry.
The Professional Beauty Association’s 2016 North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) ceremony, hosted by actor Alan Cumming, was held July 24 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
The event opened with a red-carpet reception followed by the awards ceremony, and the night capped off with an after party.
MODERN Editors Alison Alhamed and Maggie Mulhern hosted a bustling red carpet before the ceremony and interviewed finalists, host Cumming and some of the industry’s biggest names. Finalists showed off their printed collections for the camera and talked about their inspiration and process (you can see the whole segment on MODERN’s Facebook page).
Redken kicked off the presentations with a high-energy nod to New York with seemingly never-ending models.
We’d be remiss not to mention Cumming’s top-notch hosting—his light-hearted banter and ever-changing hairstyles throughout the show kept the audience laughing and energy up.
