2016 AHFA NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR WINNER: STEFFI TANIAN

Posted on 12TH APRIL 2016

Australia’s largest hairdressing award program, the Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFA), has announced Oscar Oscar Salons’ Melbourne-based stylist Steffi Tanian as the 2016 Newcomer of the Year.

Judged by a panel of renowned international industry experts, the AHFA (now in its 24th year) receives hundreds of entries each year from Australia’s hairdressing elite, and last night brought together the industry’s best for the annual awards gala event, which was held at Sydney’s iconic Luna Park.

Adding another trophy to her collection, Steffi, who has been named as an AHFA winner twice previously, now adds another win to her shining hairdressing portfolio – an impressive feat for the 23-year-old senior stylist of Oscar Oscar Salons Highpoint, Melbourne.

“I have found such a fantastic support network within the Oscar Oscar Salons team and they’ve provided me with the foundation, education and encouragement to foster my career but also challenge my abilities, which has positioned me where I am today.”

With deep-rooted passions in editorial and catwalk styling, Steffi is known for producing intricate and creative colour work on a day-to-day basis with her winning photography collection – the beautifully named ‘Odette’ – a true indication of Steffi’s exceptional talent.

Drawing inspiration from the elegance and fragility of the feminine role as portrayed in the classical ballet, the ‘Odette’ photographic collection aims to create a juxtaposition between the ethereal women and gentle form of ballet and the decay that lies beneath… the flaws in the character - just as it’s portrayed in the Odette story.

“Tight twists leading into a billowing ponytail, hair weaved tightly into itself then pulled apart to create an undone texture, small loops of hair separated by hand to produce a whimsical, fly-away effect, were all methods I employed with my ‘Odette’ collection,” explains Steffi.

TREND REPORT: MICAH GIANELLI'S TOP 4 LOOKS

Posted on 12TH JULY 2015

Micah Gianneli is the Melbournian fashionista who has taken the world by storm, through her bold fashion choices and high-end style blog. Not only is Micah a leading style icon in the fashion department, she is also the queen of short hairstyles!

To gain some professional insight into some of Micah’s best hairstyles over the last year, we chatted with Robert Weir, Salon Partner at Oscar Oscar Southland, and Micah’s go-to hairdresser, regarding his creativity behind some of Micah’s hottest looks to date!

The Androgynous Pixie
“Micah’s most recent decision to go for a very short cut, allowed me to explore an androgynous styling approach, which resulted in this 90’s inspired pixie cut.”

Camel and Taupe Tones
“This look was achieved during Micah’s transition from dark to platinum hair colouring. This is my personal favourite look for Micah so far. The fullness of the fringe is accentuated by the rich camel and taupe tones.”

The Military Crop
“The femininity of the pearl essence, ice blonde tones, balances out the harshness of the shaved side and sharp fringe.”

The Rihanna Long-Crop
“This fierce crop is all about the added length to the fringe, which creates movement and texture, for a very natural wash and wear feel! This angular style was inspired by Rihanna!”

NSW/ACT AUSTRALIAN HAIRDRESSER OF THE YEAR WINNER PALOMA ROSE GARCIA

Posted on 31ST MARCH 2015

Oscar Oscar Paddington Salon Partner, Paloma Rose Garcia, was last night awarded NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year, at the 2015 Australian Hair Fashion Awards, for her collection ‘EXTERIORITY’.

Cementing her position as one of Australia’s most successful hairdressers, Paloma outshone some of the state’s top hairdressers and aspiring creatives, to win her category at last night’s ceremony, held at Sydney’s Luna Park.

“Being named the NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year means everything to me! I have dreamt of this day since I started my career 13 years ago,” said Paloma.

“To have my collection ‘EXTERIORITY’ recognised on a scale as significant as the AHFA’s is an incredible feeling like no other.”

When discussing her vision behind the ‘EXTERIORITY’ collection, Paloma explains that the natural elements of contrast, texture, softness and strength, had a great influence on her collection.

“EXTERIORITY is unlike any of the other collections I have created, as I was working predominantly with short hair, which was very challenging.”

Paloma has been with the Oscar Oscar Salons team for ten years and is a salon owner, partnering with Oscar Cullinan in the Sydney flagship salon.

Since becoming a member of the Redken Artistic Team in 2013, Paloma has also worked closely with Redken and is grateful for the influence this has had on her career.

“Oscar Oscar Salons and Redken have assisted me with so much personal and professional development over the course of my career, they are the reason I am who I am today,” she said.
