The event of the year, the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards Gala, was held recently in Australia and highlighted talent across Australia and New Zealand.

Amazingly, the amount of entries increased by a whopping 40% over last year – highlighting just how much vibrant talent there is in Australia.

 

 

There are 18 categories, so, who were the winners on the night? We were absolutely delighted to see so many Easydry customers recognised for their achievements.
