AUSTRALIAN HAIR FASHION AWARDS 2020 CELEBRATES ITS 28TH YEAR

  HOSTED BY TV PERSONALITY CARISSA WALFORD  PRESENTED BY DYSON  

PERFORMANCES BY RISING STAR SHELDON RILEY + MORE  

The Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA), presented by Dyson will be creating a striking night to remember on  Sunday, November 8th in Sydney. The event, is celebrating its 28th year as Australia’s largest and most successful  independent hairdressing awards program. 

The prestigious event will be held at the The Big Top at Luna Park, boasting the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera  House as a spectacular backdrop. The first ever hybrid event for the industry, the sold-out AHFA will have up to  200 VIP and industry guests walking the BlackCarpet, hosted by the cheeky and hilarious SketchShe Girls, before  heading into the glamourous Grand Ballroom to enjoy an indulgent three course dinner which will be hosted by  well-known media personality Carissa Walford. 

Guests will also be treated to a theatrical performance by rising star and America’s Got Talent semi-finalist  Sheldon Riley – who will be debuting his highly anticipated new single More Than I and wearing a custom designed  mask by Jay Briggs which has been featured on a recent cover of Vogue and the runway of Paris Fashion Week – as well as another performance by the highly talented Alfie Acurie. DJ Rowntree will be playing throughout the  evening which will be live streamed to a national and global audience of industry members as well as the public.  The live stream will commence at 6:30pm AEDT on the Sunday and will be accessible via YouTube. 

In celebration of their company being born in the 90’s, Dyson beauty technologies will be used to showcase  creative hair artistry by its key styling ambassadors as part of a multi-media runway with a 90’s direction across  music, video and lighting. The entire evening will be a striking affair, set amongst pops of deep purples alongside  bright copper and against dramatic black. It will be a unique and powerful visual vibrancy, enhanced by hues of  the same colour palettes via lighting effects to reflect the Dyson Corrale straightener in a modern and minimalist  form.  

The Australian Hair Fashion Awards is owned by M Division with David and Jamil Mannah at the helm – both  pioneers of innovation for the industry and who focus on the high level of creative skill within the industry. The  AHFA has been growing steadily each year and now attracts hundreds of entries from salons and individuals across  Australia. Entries are judged by a panel of international industry professionals, each of whom brings a wealth of  experience and knowledge to the judging process. 

“We are thrilled to be going ahead with the Australian Hair Fashion Awards in 2020.The pivoting of the event in  challenging times has brought about a hybrid version of the Australian Hair Fashion Awards, presented by Dyson  this year. This will see the event reach an even greater and wider audience that will be able to participate in the  night – a first for this type of industry event!” – David Mannah

As a global leader, AHFA is the only hair fashion awards program that has the fortitude and commitment to stage  a live onsite event that will instil the confidence in the industry to celebrate its creative skills in the midst of  challenging times. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, AHFA, Dyson and the venue will ensure a strong and  effective implementation of Australian and NSW government rules and guidelines around social distancing and  safety procedures to protect all staff and guests.
